Re: [K12OSN] Big Troubles



Jim,
On top of what jim wrote, if the problem is at the server, go over the /var/log/messages and other logs to see if there are any out of the norm messages. I had a problem with a SCSI controller that dropped off line,RAID 0, and there was a one liner in the message log that I missed that would have saved me a 20 mile drive to the site. Also, depending on the hardware, If you have diags, run them. I tend towards dells, partly because of the diagnostic software that comes standard. A few starting points.

All of our clients are dropping off after only running a short while- minutes... The twin 3 gig mp server is crawling- K12ltsp 4.2. A reboot just allows all of the slow downs and trouble to begin minutes after reboot.

ps -aux | grep ident

My technician thought we had a bad switch or computer somewhere. We have unplugged every switch from our short fibre network. We can't keep the server up or clients reliably. Help!

Thanks,  Jim
