I have a problem with Centos 6.2 server that is running on an HP Proliang DL380 G4 server where I run a Public FTP Service. The system runs for about a day and then it suddenly hangs, and I cant connect to it until its rebooted.

What logs should I check to analyze if the issue is Hardware or sofware related.


You want to analyze the ProLiant IML logs, which are available with the installation of the HP ProLiant Support Pack. Since this is a DL380 G4, you can also see this information from the ILO interface on the system. CentOS 6 isn't tehnically supported, but it obviously installs. Check the drivers here.

Based on your symptoms, I'd suspect that the system board or RAM are the issues on this 7-8 year-old server.
