My server went down today and was down for hours while I was away from home. This is critical since it is my email server. I couldn't figure out what it was and I went to dnswatch.info so see if it was resolving correctly and it was timing out on the final set which was for my nameserver.
I VNC'd into my box and there it was sitting on GRUB. On boot I have to go into VNC and manually hit "enter" on the properly highlighted option. I can't figure out how to fix this and would really appreciate any help I can get please.
