POWEREDGE C6100 is randomly rebooting

This question has suggested answer(s)



I have bought two second hand POWEREDGE C6100 from Ebay seller with high reputation.

Now there is a problem, that in bow servers all for nodes are randomly rebooting every 1-14 days. There is no longer uptime like 14 days. Node can reboot after 2 or after 12 days. They are rebooting randomly. I would say rather at night when load is even lover. From all 4 server nodes only one node is rebooting at once. Another can reboot after 4 hours, or after few days. No any logic.


DELL POWEREDGE C6100 with 4 per nodes server. These nodes are all identical(Configuration is attached).

Linux t2-3 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.60-1+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux
CPU avg idle 30%
The load average of these nodes are 20.0-25.0.

cat /proc/sys/kernel/panic - 0

All nodes are doing video encoding.

Ram test passed.

Please note, tat nodes are with 3x4 Gb RAM. But for i.e. RAM test “memtest86+” show only 2 modules. But total capacity is right 12 Gb. Below image of ram test.

  • Hello?

  • Any news about that?

    Additional info. We have made CPU temp graph. Temperature is not to high and it is constant. No spice or something before/during/after reboot.

    We have two servers with 4 nodes.

    In 1st server one node have now 38 days up time and rest 2/6/10 days

    in 2nd server one node have now 20 days up time and rest 1/2/3 days

    They all are identical, doing the same job, have the same OS, software, load, temp etc.

  • No we haven't solved this problem. Did you solved? Could you advise something?

  • Hello Aaron

    I'm so happy you here. It took just almost a year to check this tread.

    No that didn't help (as there no much info about this server, and no any info related to our problem)
