After upgrading a Compaq proliant 5500 smp server to 5.2.1  I=92ve now =
got
a server that reboots most ungracefully ever 45 minuets-ish.
It ran 4.8 for a very long time with no problems so I=92m guessing that
it=92s something to do with the power management in 5x  as the problem=20
only manifests it=92s self  if the server is idling for the whole time.=20
Server is on bios revision E12  dated 8/11/2000 which I think is the
last one for this model, 4200 raid card is also running latest revision.

I=92ve currently got it doing a cron job every =BD hour to keep it =
going.
I=92d like to fix the problem rather than turn features off. All
suggestions or pointers welcome
Regards
Kevin=20
