Top and bottom posting is screwing up the flow but still....
Apart from / also look at /tmp. However in such cases you are able to
log in to the server as root since a minimum amount of space is never
allocated. Also clients should boot but not let any one log in.

This could be drive failure / raid failure or dozen of other things.
You need to carefully look at logs and see what happend prior to
freeze. I've had freeze due to power supply over heating! (posted in
past sometime). IAC curious to know your views now that hopefully this
has not happend again after you restarted.
