Ed, You mentioned it is a PC based Mikrotik. Is it a VIA chipset or a better question is what type of hardware are you using? Also, what type of Ethernet cards are you using? You said 4-port, is it a RB44? Does it have onboard Ethernet ports? Are they disabled?
Do you have any way of monitoring/graphing power at the facility? If you use APC for a battery backup, I am sure you can use "The Dude" to graph your input power. I have found if it is at random times, it is sometimes caused by power spikes/dips. Might want to graph CPU load, memory usage, power, and Temp if at all possible. Start trending things and see if you see a pattern.

PC Based Mikrotik with Disk-on module, SBE Card, 4Port Ethernet card... Hard locks at random. Has been happening every 2 to 4 weeks (sometimes longer) but a reboot takes care of it, so it has not been a real issue, just aggravating. Recently happened twice in one week so we replaced the hardware - all of it, including PC and all cards - and upgraded to 2.9.29. This was a week and 2 days ago - it locked up again today, same symptoms. This is a complete lock up, no telnet, ssh, etc... No activity on local monitor/keyboard...no traffic, etc. This is used as back haul and pushes a steady 10-12 Megs during peak hours. The lock ups happen during peak and off peak hours so I don't think it is load related. There is another MT at the opposite end of the backhaul link with the same cards installed. This MT had this same issue a while back but cleared up after changing hardware, which is why we thought a hardware change would fix the current problem. but...about an hour after today's lock up and reboot, it happened again and this time it was the other end - the one that has been fine since it was replaced several months ago. Very frustrating and difficult to troubleshoot, no logs or dumps of any kind.
