From time to time I'm having abends when the server is booting. You restart it and everything seems to work fine. But then, again, after a few days when you restart the server the abend reapears.

The server is a Proliant ML370 G5 with 4 GB of RAM

I'm using Netware 6.5 SP8 fully patched (I think).

Here is part of the Abend Log:
