Thumbs down Compaq ML370 G3 server 2x+2,4GHz reboot

Hello.

J have Compaq ML370 server 2x+2,4GHz with 3GB RAM.
J have installed Windows 2000 Server.
I have two instances of Prime95 with 2 Affinity set to diffrent processor.
My server is reboots when Prime95 goings witout no results.txt information.
J had runned stress test on the two instancess apart, but the server had rebooted only on one processor, without information of error.
There are (results.txt) only many records
Self-test xxxK passed!

I think it is hardware problem, but J do not have any information about it.

Had someone that problem, who has dual processor in computer?

Thanks a lot for any opinion.

I have a monoprocessor version of the G3 2.8 and it works fine (W2003). Maybe W2000 has some bugs in a multiprocessor environment?

Just some ideas:

Could it be related to this thread? Do you use the latest (23.8) Version of prime95? Can you try the test using less memory in the system?

My dual-Athlon runs Win2k, and Prime95 runs fine on it.

If it is rebooting, maybe you have bad memory?
Stop all Prime95 and run memtest overnight, from http://hcidesign.com/memtest/ .

Also give ramtest86.com a try for diagnosis of bad memory. Windows and linux version are available. It is one of the best free memory testers available. I use Micro2000's Microscope at work which is not bad but expensive and it only has a few memory tests available. The Microscope version upgrades go for $100, but I can not recall what the full version sells for. Quicktech Pro is reportedly a better program and reasonable prices around $349-$399.

Thumbs down Bad memory NO

I had tested memory 5 days in new year and everything OK (docmem2_1b).
It had 56 steps in testing all memory and had found none.

It isn't memory :-( but thanks for reply.

Did you install the Compaq support software? Running two LL tests can flood bandwidth enough that the system may be doing an ASR (automatic system recovery). I would install the latest support software before you go any further.

If it runs one Prime95 fine for a couple of days on one processor, and fine for a couple of days on the other processor, then it may be that.

I once ran 4 LL tests on a quad P3/800 Xeon box, it was so overloaded, you couldn't even login. Had to wait for it to ASR or turn it off.

On duals, I run an LL test on CPU1 and a Trial Factoring assignment on CPU0. Keeps things running so I can term serve into the box.

J think it isn't ASR because then system shutdown normally (J think so).
J am running the new 23.8 version of Prime95 now, and J am waiting what happend. J have downloaded the newest version of the Compaq support software a week ago, but I started with the new version of Prime95.
How ASR doing? Have you had the same situation of reboot, Paulie?
Thanks for good intuition :-)

I don't run prime on that quad box anymore, it became a domain controller, and I don't run prime on production boxes (except for testing and my boss' desktop machine).

I would check the integrated management log, it should tell you something. Good Luck!

I don't think prime is the cause of the reboots, I would guess it is hardware related.
