No I didn't change the hardware. The server is installed in our
colocation-center for 3 weeks but was not really used so far.
I discover theses lines in the logs and in fact the server restarts itself
when it fails.
And as I am a bit far from the server, I can't test a hardware changement

I want to know if it's an hardware problem or not, and if it's the hard
disk, the memory etc...

Any Idea ?
