Servers sending ARP packets
« on: December 14, 2009, 06:27:20 PM »

There are 2 DMZ servers server1 and server2 that are currently not responding.  The front channels of both servers has had their ports wrapped (at the switch end), because the servers were sending out arp calls that were adversely affecting other servers in the environment.  The team that uses these servers needs the server back online so that they can continue on with their work, but before we do that, we need to ensure that the servers are fixed before they are brought back on the network.  

What all things should I check ? I found that both the servers got rebooted around 50 days back, but I am unable to trace any cause for the reboot. Please help.
