    Server restarts on his own


    Hy all,
    I have a problem with one a server installed with Debian 3.1, that is restarting almost every day at the same hour, 6,25 AM. Here are the messages obtained with
    #cerberus:/etc# grep -C 5 restart /var/log/messages

    .....missing displays....

    As I said, there are days when the system is not restarting, but more often it does. For example, on 6th and 8th October it didn't restart, but on 7th it did, and the messages are the same.
    Any ideas?

    There is obviously restart somewhere in your crons.

    cat /etc/crontab

    and

    crontab -l

    It is always between 6-7am so i am quite confident there is a reboot set somewhere in cronts, hope this helped you out.
