RH 4
nfs mounted with
 (rw,bg,intr,hard,timeo=600,wsize=32768,rsize=32768,tcp) nfs is used purely for backups
by default, it uses ver=3
Sun V40Z AMD server

By puking, I mean Server dies (reboots). This is less of an oracle issue and more of an OS issue, but I was curious if anyone has seen this.

Apologies for not providing details earlier.. was sort of a quick question, maybe someone has seen it.
