My backup server running microcore 3.8.4 has started freezing up when staff are performing a backup to it. The server has been working fine for years without a problem.
When I get emails from staff about failed backup, and get to the server the the screen is dark, pressing keys on keyboard does not seem to wake up the system. I have to kill power, and reboot to get the system up and running.
The system boots from a microcore 3.8.4 CD
tce file is located on a 500gb ext usb hd, this same usb hd contains a few folders which are shared.
also attached is an 500gb pata hd which contains a few folders which are shared.
I'm wondering if its possible to get he messages file to be written to disk in some simple way, so I can review it for helpful hints as to the problem ?
Any comments and suggestions welcome.
