Server Reboot




     We had to reboot ultra7, the main NFS server to clear a problem, the
exact origins of which remain unknown.

     Last night, we had to reboot the web server twice because NFS seems to
stop talking.

     This morning the client SMTP server which resides on the same machine
stopped properly forwarding mail to outside sites.  No sendmail conf changes
had been made and restarting sendmail wouldn't restore service.  I was unable
to identify anything wrong with any of the supporting services but still it
would not deliver properly.

     I rebooted the server after which normal mail processing resumed.  I do
not know what the cause of this issue was.
