Server crashing, possible driver issue
My server has been crashing on a nightly basis the last few nights. It doesn't come back up automatically either, my host has to manually restart it. I did an update to CentOS last week, but no new software was installed (I just did a yum update). I had no issues before I did the update. In the logs the following appears during the crash,
WARNING: at net/sched/sch_generic.c:261 dev_watchdog+0x26b/0x280() (Tainted: P --------------- )
I did some Googleing and it appears to be a network driver related issue, but I had trouble finding a fix.
The server is a Supermicro SuperServer 5017C-MTF
Has anyone here seen anything like this?
I really appreciate your help!

What activity are your logs showing prior to the crash?
Do you have your BIOS set to reboot?
What things did the update change, especially with a server you need check what an update change can't just automaticly say yes.
I'd say if a network driver you wouldn't be connecting at all, maybe a memory leak from the update.
Does the crash keep happening at the same time?A lion does not lose sleep, over the opinion of sheep.
