kernel panic- not syncing : fatal exception on RHEL 5


Hi All,

One of the RHEL 5 server suddenly went in to kernel panic with error "kernel panic- not syncing : fatal exception on RHEL 5".

In order to revive the system we hard rest the system using ILO. No core dump was generated due to kdump mistakenly not operational due to which we are not able to figure out the root cause of the kernel panic.

I am sharing the logs before server was restarted, Could the trap divide error be the root cause as it could be seen before restart.

Note: This server is a part of Oracle cluster.

If you've nothing else, it's a good place to start. Your choice of colour made the message illegible, btw.

My guess is: Something went badly wrong; the kernel trapped it and logged it; then there was a crash. Is a hack attempt a possibility?

This was the error logged before the kernel panic and reset. No possibility of hacking.
