Hi,

I found my server off power this morning when I came to work. It wasn't responding and the service crew had to turn it back on again. At the moment I am rather clueless on what might have caused the shutdown - it definitely wasn't me :D

this is on uname -a
Code:
FreeBSD frodo.metrico 9.2-RELEASE-p6 FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE-p6 #0: Tue May 13 08:21:53 UTC 2014     root@amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64
The entries in /var/log/messages.0.bz2 from yesterday:
Code:
May 18 12:59:09 frodo kernel: 
May 18 12:59:09 frodo kernel: pid 1060 (httpd), uid 80: exited on signal 11
May 18 12:59:10 frodo kernel: .
May 18 12:59:11 frodo kernel: , 942.
May 18 12:59:12 frodo kernel: .
May 18 12:59:12 frodo ntpd[904]: ntpd exiting on signal 15
May 18 12:59:12 frodo kernel: .
May 18 12:59:12 frodo kernel: .
May 18 12:59:12 frodo syslogd: exiting on signal 15
/var/log/dmesg.yesterday is empty(0 bytes) and /var/log/dmesg.today shows the boot process from today.

last output (brfr would be me):
Code:
brfr       pts/0    88.207.158.228         Mon May 19 09:04   still logged in
boot time                                  Mon May 19 08:55
shutdown time                              Sun May 18 12:59
brfr       pts/2    88.207.190.122         Fri May 16 16:33 - 16:59  (00:26)
I've been rebuilding some ports due to the textproc/libxml2 update, but I've certainly not commanded a shutdown on Sunday. Are there any circumstances where a server shuts itself down(creepy thought, I know)?

So, any ideas? I am willing to share more logfiles, just tell me what you need ...

Re: Unexpected server shutdown

Alas, I was told a broken network cable caused the shutdown. I am unable to imagine why though; but I will accept this as a fact and hope that this doesn't happen again.
