Issue Description
The server automatically restarts 10 minutes after startup.
Alarm Information
none
Handling Process
The cause is that the BMC WDT takes effect and forcibly restarts the server during operating system installation.
Solution:
Restore the BIOS settings to the default settings and disable the BMC WDT function.
Advanced > IPMI 2.0 Configuration
Root Cause
By default, the BMC WDT function is disabled. The function can be enabled only when the upper layer of the operating system has the WDT drive program. During the operating system installation, the WDT drive does not take effect. The installation takes over 20 minutes. Therefore, the BMC WDT forcibly restarts the server when the installation is not finished.
 
Suggestions
 When the operating system is not running, disable the BMC WDT function.
