Today we experienced the same kernel panic which occured earlier during the weekly backup timeframe. A reboot on the server was performed on both occasion as the server is not responding in timely manner We determine no hardware malfunction through various system logs and are monitoring the server closely. The timing matches almost closely with the backup that is running on weekly basis. We have submitted this case the solusvm for their review on the backup script.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused
10.40PM 24th Oct: Kernel panic occured and server reboot was performed
