Unix server will not stay up on the network

Smilie

Hello,

I am a beginner at UNIX. I have a server running SCO UNIXWARE 7.1.0
Every morning this week the server has been down. I have to Hardboot her to get her back online.

What commands can I do to help me diagnose what is going on?

This is urgent....thank you.

Logs

If I were you I would go and check my logs /var you probably will find some interesting information there. Smilie

another option, you can use sar command to check the system load. Im suspecting the system load might contribut the server to panic & thus hang.

use:
sar -d

if the sar is not enabled by default on your machine enable it:
/usr/lib/sa/sar_enable -y

Enable all logging for your logs as well.

One other thing, I would see if it always happens at the same/similar time of day. Also, check for failed hardware as well: faulty busses/nic cards/scsi adapters.

If you have any crash logs or core files, investigate those. If you have vendor support you might have to involve them.
