Re: Spontaious SERVER down (goes off)

As the others mentioned, it looks like an issue with the hardware, not
software. I suspect it is the BIOS or some other feature config that
is not standard-fare.
To be sure, trying ruling out an issue at a time. Let's say, disconnect
the UPS signal cable (serial/USB) and let the server run and see if it
doesn't shut down after a day or more - you indicate it shuts down
during office hours. You think you also mean the server runs during
the night and doesn't shut down.
I'm not familiar with this server. Is there a software monitor for the
hardware that is running? That might be causing the shutdowns after
reaching thresholds. IMO the problem is along these lines. A BIOS
update may solve the problem. Or perhaps new a replacement mobo.
