Deadlock Waiting For Spinlock

For a long time now, I have been experiencing sporadic issues related to
this. It did not happen for four months but has happened twice in the past
36 hours.

I am running a COMPAQ/HP Proliant ML370G3, dual Xeon 2.8, 4 GB RAM. Smart
Array 5300 controller driving a RAID 1 system array and a RAID 5 data
array. The server has an iLO card (Integrated Lights-Out) and is ASR
capable of course.

O/S: Netware 6.0 SP5a. Dual Processor support in Netware is OFF. Level 2
Oplocking off as well. Currently ASR is off as well, as we were hoping to
grab something to the Abend.log. However, when this crash occurs, it does
not write anything to the Abend log. The log has not been written to since
June of this year, and that was unrelated.

The processor and MB were replaced last spring. All BIOS and firmware
updates were performed this summer to the board, iLO card, RAID card.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can gather some relevbant
information to help me isolate a cause?

Make sure you use the following setting to be able to grab the abend.log
file:

set auto restart after abend = 0

With this, if the server abends, it will stop and present you some options
to continue. At this point, you should select the option to write the
abend.log file and exit.

If you can't manage to create an abend.log file that way, then give us a
config file for your server and maybe we can see something wrong.
From the server console, execute the following command:

load config /all

Post the resulting config.txt file here.
