Re: Random Reboots with a R710 and Windows 2008 R2
I am also experiencing this exact same issue. We have two identically configured PE R 710 servers. Only one is exhibiting the signs of this issue while the other is not. Dell Tech Support confirmed we should disable C1-E in the BIOS. The only noticeable change is, with C1-E disabled, the server just completely freezes, including from DRAC, and the only way to bring it back is a full power cycle manually (in our case via DRAC). By leaving the C1-E state enabled, the server still crashes but it Blue Screens and automatically reboots itself which is much more useful than it halting.
