Strange Reboots

This isn’t going to be a terribly helpful post, but I do think it is interesting.  I have a server that is exhibiting some strange behavior.  When I copy a file to the server it reboots. 

At first, I thought this was a specific file, but later determined that it didn’t matter what the file was as long as it was over 4 MB.  I copied a 1 KB file and nothing happened.  I copied a file just under 5 MB and the system locked up, and then rebooted. 

I thought maybe it was a problem with the file, so I copied it local to my computer.  No problem. hmm…

I copied it directly from the source server to the destination server. Crashed the destination.  Weird…

I copied it from my computer to the destination server.  No problem.  I copied a very large (2 GB) file from my computer to the destination computer.  No problem.

I was about to decom that server anyway.  Bombs away…
