Random System Crash - what to look for in logs?
Hi. this morning i came in and the system was completey farked.
i tried rebooting and it would come up. found an error mounting the filesystem (root mounted fine)
this is M1 on fedora 3
i did interactive startup and didn't start zimbra and the machine booted up.
what should i look for in the logs as a possible cause? what logs other than /var/logs/zimbra.log?
Nov 23 04:03:45 curley kernel: Oops: 0000 [#1]
kernel: Oops means that your system is going to crash.
You can punch some of the kernel messages into google, and see what you find.
The clamd reloading is normal - we update (by default) the virus definitions every 2 hours, that's what you're seeing.
Are there any disk errors being logged?
I can't tell you with 100% certainty that zimbra isn't contributing to this - but I've been running it for months, and it's never crashed the machine. It's possible that that it's contributing, especially if the disk activity is hitting some problem in your controller, or drive.
