    Question How to find its root reason after a down SuSE is back from a reboot


    Dear All,

    I got a new job and need to take care many SuSE 64bit server from OS side.But I am not very familiar with SuSE OS.

    Is it similar to Centos 6?

    Also how to find related root reason after a down SuSE is back from a reboot?

    Would appreciate it much if you show any useful reply.

    Well, your message is a bit abstract. Depending upon the version of Suse, it may be similar to either CentOS 6.x or 7.x. My server runs 6.8 and I run 7.3 in a VirtualBox VM. Specifically, what do you mean by "back from a reboot"? Are you saying that it doesn't come up to a login screen? Or what, exactly?

    i think op means that if a server crashes, and needs to be rebooted, and, supposing it reboots fine, where to find the reason for the previous crash.

    In those cases, check in /var/log/messages is the usually path to take.

    I was looking at this post and couldn't figure out how I could help. Systemd? Not? Logs ... one would think a server admin already investigated all possible logs before posting here?

    Quite frequently, there are new sysadmins posting here who are just learning their chops, especially if they came from a Windows environment.

    So first get the job then learn it? Would you be happy if schoolbus drivers were hired by same principle for instance? I used to be a manager and did hiring. I hired people who were qualified for the job.

    Well, yes. Ditto here. However I keep seeing companies today hiring inexperience people simply because they are "cheaper". "Can you spell Linux? Ok. You are our new sysadmin!"...

    Alright, I'm a cheap employer and will hire just anybody. Lets turn around and look at the same thing from employee viewpoint. Would you take a Linux sysadmin job if you even do not know where the logs are?
