Troubled RHEL6.1 server


I have recently reinstalled a server that I administer. The server is now running RHEL6.1. It is our main file server/NAS, via NFS. It also runs a couple of minor services; DNS, DHCP, and NTP.

This server has rebooted on it's own several times since the reinstall, six times in the last week. I have checked the logs several times and have not found anything that would point to a cause of these reboots. The logs are sometimes lacking anywhere from five, to fifty, minutes worth of logs prior to the boot sequence. I initially thought cronjobs or something similar however, there don't seem to be any that initiate a reboot.

I have also checked out the logs within the /var/log/sa directory. The resources on the machine don't appear to be heavily utilized prior to the reboot of the server. My goal is to determine why this machine keeps rebooting. Once I have determined the cause, I'd like to resolve the issue.

Once again I'm running RHEL6.1. The kernel is currently 2.6.32-131.17.1.el6.x86_64. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Not much we can help with, without information. If your logs don't show anything, have you considered also mirroring your logs to another syslog server, so if they aren't getting written locally, they might still get logged remotely (maybe).

And RedHat support is who you need to call, since you're paying for it, right? RHEL is a paid distro, and if you're not paying, you won't get bugfixes/updates that may have been released after the DVD was. Also, RHEL has diagnostic tools to help you...

TB0ne, thanks for the response. The distro is actually Scientific Linux 6.1, I've just gotten into the habit of calling it RHEL.

Here are the logs that the server has actually rebooted. These logs are extremely useful to me because sometimes we don't even realize that the server has rebooted.

reboot system boot 2.6.32-131.17.1. Thu Oct 27 04:57 - 14:53 (09:56)
reboot system boot 2.6.32-131.17.1. Wed Oct 26 21:57 - 14:53 (16:56)
reboot system boot 2.6.32-131.17.1. Wed Oct 26 01:54 - 14:53 (1+12:59)
reboot system boot 2.6.32-131.17.1. Fri Oct 21 02:15 - 14:53 (6+12:37)

Below are the logs from /var/log/messages around the time of the reboot. Note: hostnames, IPs, and directories have been changed for anonymity.

Hmmm...I wonder if you are having some sort of hardware failure? Do you have lm-sensors installed? You can run the command "sensors" to see your processor's temperature. Your box may be overheating, but normally, it would get shutdown rather than rebooted. Another thing to check is if selinux is enabled. If it is, temporarily disable it with this command as root:
Code:
setenforce 0
Let it run for a while after that to see if it keeps doing it.

I'm leaning more towards a hardware issue as well. selinux is currently disabled.

SELinux status: disabled

I'm going to try and setup smb to use port 445 only, and setup remote logging, today. I checked and it does not appear that lm_sensors is currently installed. Thank you for the info. I'll see if that's something I can implement also.

Thanks again

I have configured the machine for remote logging, over tcp, and tested. The remote logging is working properly.

*.* @@192.168.1.86

I would like to test the samba changes prior to making them on this machine.

It sounds, at least to me, like it's a hardware failure. Are you using RAID by any chance? Hard drive failures usually lead to lock ups, but I'm not completely sure about that. You could also have some obscure hardware that your kernel doesn't like. We have a problem at work where one of the servers reboots for no reason every so often.

We have a RAID setup on this box however it's a couple of RAID60 configurations. I believe we can handle nearly six drive failures prior to a catastrophe.

The server was not doing this prior to the reinstall. We went from running CentOS 5.7, to SL 6.1. We made this change so we could resolve the sixteen group limitation within AUTH_SYS/NFS.

I think there may be a kernel bug. Are you running 32 or 64 bit? Also, when you were running Centos5, which architecture where you running? I can't remember at the moment, but when using RAID, there is a feature that has to be either turned on or off on your BIOS. Not sure if this is related though. The problem that we running into is with RHEL5. Come to think of it, our box just crashes, not reboot. We have an additional RHEL5 with the same specs that doesn't do that. Go figure!

The server hung up this evening and I had to reboot it. Here are some of the errors/logs from the reboot.

The console showed the following when I plugged in a keyboard and mouse:

usb 4-2: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 4-2: device not accepting address 5, error -71
hub 4-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 2
This was duplicated several times

Logs are as follows:

Right before I rebooted the machine, I was able to login as root but not any of the users. This leads me to believe it may be something wrong with the RAID as all of the users home directories reside on /dev/sdb1, and /dev/sdc1. I also couldn't access the /opt directory. The opt directory has a couple of symbolic links that point to directories on /dev/sdb1 also.

The vendor has requested that I upgrade the firmware, and the driver, on the RAID controller. I'll see if I can schedule that prior to the weekend. I'll be sure to let you know if it helps.

Thanks again

Just thought I'd note that the 192.168.1.3 belongs to this server. It was having troubles serving NFS to all of it's clients.

The RAID controller that we're using on this machine is a MegaRAID SAS 9280-4i4e. I have successfully upgraded the driver for the controller. We're now running version 00.00.05.40 of the driver.

I'm going to give this twenty four hours to settle. If all is well, I will upgrade the firmware.

Thank you

Great to hear. Hopefully that will fix the issue. Let us know how it works out.

Server has rebooted once again. This time it was at 8:20 on Saturday evening.

I'm going to upgrade the firmware on the controller and get back to the hardware vendor. This is completely random and nothing is erroneous within the logs.
