server hangs

dell pe2650, nw65sp5 and client 4.91sp2

randomly the server just hangs and stops responding. When I try to browse
the server volumes, the windows hangs and get a "volume not accessible
message" in windows. On the server console, if I issue a command, it does
not response. There is no abend report and nothing writting to the abend
log. Is there a way to do a dump to see what is causing the
freezing/hanging?

I will look into upgrading a hardware firmware and drivers.

Thanks in advance.

That's because it didn't abend.

Next time it happens try to get into the debugger with
shift-shift-alt-esc - this often works even if no other keys do. If
nothing happens you almost certainly have a hardware fault.

If you get to a # prompt you are in the debugger, it could be software
or hardware. Do ? <enter> to see what module the hang happened in. If it
always hangs in the same module it is likely to be a problem with that
module, if it is always different modules it is likely to be a hardware
fault. Enter Q <enter> to exit the debugger to Dos.
