Instantly restart a server or workstation each day
Authored by: TigerKR on Oct 19, '05 10:22:49AM

From the original hint: "Among other things, I administer two identical servers located in different locations on different LANs. They're running Mac OS X 10.4.2 client w/all updates..."

DNS is handled by Mice & Men Suite 5, and DHCPD is handled by the darwin-ports build isc-dhcpd-V3.0.2. That is the only darwin-port I have installed.

Are any of the machines that you admin Blue and White G3 towers? I don't have a problem with Tiger on any of the other computers that I administer, but they're all G4s and they aren't running DNS, DHCPD, IPFW2, nor NATD.

Just yesterday I swapped out a Blue and White tower for a Quicksilver G4 (single processor). I will try removing the daily restart on the G4 tower to see if it was a problem with the OS in relation to the old hardware.
