hanging on boot with nohup error

Oh joy, I've inherited a web hosting company with no tech, and now I have a major crisis 2 days into my tenure. Aaaargh! Machine running Red Hat (7.3 I believe) is freezing on boot, most services start okay then get message nohup:appending output to 'nohup.out'. Can anyone tell me how to overcome this? FYI I am not at the machine, so instructions on what to do when I go down to the NOC would be deeply appreciated. I've done a google search and not found anything to help me....

Well, if you are not at the machine, how do you reboot ?

I would restart the computer (from cdrom) and switch to rescue/repair mode to look into the mysterious nohup.out.

Sorry, I can not resist and ask: Are you looking for a tech ? (A Red Hat Certified Engineer like me?)

nohup as I recall runs things in the background. You need to somehow find the process or program that is running in the background and kill it all. Or I may be 5000 pages off the topic...
