FC7 VM Login Prompt Freezing Problems
I have a virtual machine hosted on VMWare server 1.0, it is a file server (running FC7 and Samba). Logins are via NIS and authenticate with the VM hosts (also FC7).
When I start the virtual machine, I am able to login and access it both from the console and via SSH with no problems and access Samba. After being up for approximately 3 /4 days Samba can no longer be accessed and SSH will time out.
When attempting to investigate further at the console, after entering the user name and pressing enter, it freezes, there is no prompt for a password. At this point I have to do a hard power off. Ctrl-Alt-Delete does not work, nor does Ctrl-C or Ctrl-\. Further more and rather frustratingly, there are no errors in the syslog and no errors associated with YPBind or Samba. This makes the problem rather difficult to investigate.
The machine worked fine up until about a month ago. Now, this happens every 2/3 days. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
