That's what I thought too. However, according to my system status message this morning: "Local system status: 3:13AM up 3 days, 11 mins, 0 users, load averages: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00" My /var/log/messages still contains messages older than 3 days ago; it's from where I pulled the log lines from my original post. As you can see, there's no sign of a cause for reboot there. -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of John DeStefano Sent: Friday, February 13, 2004 10:17 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: reboot record information I was interested to find from a system mail this morning that my system had been rebooted three days ago. As far as I was aware, the last reboot was about two months ago. The following lines in /var/log/messages give me a clue that the reboot happened after "Feb 10 02:51:52": Feb 10 02:51:52 zurg inetd: netbios-ns/udp: bind: Address already in use [note: the "netbios-ns/udp" line is a system message that I get every 10 minutes... haven't been able to figure that one out either] Feb 10 03:02:37 zurg syslogd: kernel boot file is /boot/kernel/kernel Feb 10 03:02:37 zurg kernel: Copyright (c) 1992-2003 The FreeBSD Project.... But there's no sign of what happened to cause the reboot, or how it was done. Is there another log file that would store this information? I am mostly concerned because I'm fairly certain this reboot was not performed at the console: it was either a system reaction to a problem, or somebody poking around where they shouldn't be...
