Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Why does my Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.5 system reboot? I see the following message in systemlog before the reboot:
/usr/sbin/bmc-watchdog[xxxx]: fiid_obj_get: 'present_countdown_value': data not available
  • Server is getting restart again and again due to bmc-watchdog.
