KP panic are mostly due to faulty ram modules, try with other ram modules. and or, test them with rember http://kelleycomputing.net/rember/
I also saw some due to external HD. Try without it (not plugged)
This is the third Mac Mini I'm trying this on, so it would seem pretty unusual to have 3 stock Mac Minis that all had RAM problems? I'll try running the utility, thanks for that. I also disconnected the external FW drive and am using a Thunderbolt drive now to test (I need to back-up to something). And I disconnected the Apple Display so it's running headless (I get in via ARD). Will report back but confidence is low.
I have had what I think to be the same problem.
I have a mac-mini with the following configuration:
10.8.2, 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7, 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3, 256 SSDGB. This was a custom machine directly from Apple.
All I have installed on the machine besides updates, is updated to OSX Server and installed FMP 12 Server, 220.127.116.117. It is running headless.
This is my second machine. I previously had an identical mini, and had the random kernel panics. I relaized the kernel panics within 15 days of having the machine. I ran the apple built in diagnostics, and it showed a hardware error. It pointed to a SSD/memory/controller problem, was vague. Using this info, I was able to get Apple to replace the machine based on it being so new, and the apple diagnostics pointing out this problem.
I received another brand new mini, identical specs. I updated software, installed OS X server, and FMP Server. This one does pass all of the Apple diagnostics. This one is randomly restarting with kernel panics too. It may run for a week before having one, and then have two with 4 hours of each other.
It is lightly used, hosting 21 databases. I do have Web publishing enabled, and am using FMP's PHP install.
Here is the first bit of one of the latest kernel panics:Sun Mar 3 07:11:53 2013panic(cpu 2 caller 0xffffff80078b7e75): Kernel trap at 0xffffff8007b4b8bf, type 14=page fault, registers:CR0: 0x0000000080010033, CR2: 0xffffff80baddecc3, CR3: 0x000000007bdd904e, CR4: 0x00000000001606e0RAX: 0x000000000000004c, RBX: 0xffffff802b868ad0, RCX: 0xffffff801a790a60, RDX: 0xffffff80baddecafRSP: 0xffffff80f7e83de0, RBP: 0xffffff80f7e83e30, RSI: 0xffffff801a8ed98f, RDI: 0xffffff801a790ecfR8: 0xffffff801a790800, R9: 0x0000000000000000, R10: 0x000000000000002c, R11: 0x0000000000000202R12: 0x0000000000000708, R13: 0xffffff802b868ad0, R14: 0xffffff801974be18, R15: 0xffffff801a6b0520RFL: 0x0000000000010282, RIP: 0xffffff8007b4b8bf, CS: 0x0000000000000008, SS: 0x0000000000000010Fault CR2: 0xffffff80baddecc3, Error code: 0x0000000000000000, Fault CPU: 0x2Backtrace (CPU 2), Frame : Return Address0xffffff80f7e83a80 : 0xffffff800781d6260xffffff80f7e83af0 : 0xffffff80078b7e750xffffff80f7e83cc0 : 0xffffff80078cd3bd0xffffff80f7e83ce0 : 0xffffff8007b4b8bf0xffffff80f7e83e30 : 0xffffff8007b591cf0xffffff80f7e83e60 : 0xffffff8007b5942f0xffffff80f7e83ea0 : 0xffffff8007b58c590xffffff80f7e83f00 : 0xffffff8007b5973c0xffffff80f7e83f50 : 0xffffff8007be060a0xffffff80f7e83fb0 : 0xffffff80078cdc03BSD process name corresponding to current thread: javaMac OS version:12C3103Kernel version:Darwin Kernel Version 12.2.1: Thu Oct 18 12:13:47 PDT 2012; root:xnu-2050.20.9~1/RELEASE_X86_64Kernel UUID: 3F93B852-872F-3DF0-BCF8-46D48024C422Kernel slide: 0x0000000007600000Any suggestions? Like I said, this is the seond identical mac mini. Both of them are running headless. I would think it would be highly unlikely both of them have faulty ram, the first one did fail the hardware test, though.Thanks!
Al- Sorry you're having trouble too, but also kinda glad I'm not the only one here.
My memory was ok. I disconnected the FW800 drive and am using a thunderbolt drive now, and I am running headless so display connection issues should be eliminated. Still getting reboots, with kernel panic in the Console.
BTW, these aren't freezes or dimmed screened KP's, the only reason I even know they were KP's is when I inspected the console logs. The machne just randomly reboots.
No fixes here, not even sure where to turn... Let me know if you get ahold of any info, I'll do the same here.
For what it's worth, I'm having the same issue. FM 12 Server Advanced, 10.8.2 sever, newer mac mini with nothing else installed. Getting kernel panics and automatic restarts randomly. Log references the same Java process. Luckly, this is not my live sever yet... I was hoping to move to it but there is no way I can do it with this problem looming.
Just one more disturbing detail to add. The last panic happened when the server was idle. No connected users and only a couple of databases even being hosted.
I installed the latest Java update (as of Monday 3/4/2013), and the problem persists-
Thank you for the posts.
I responded to the related post in our report an issue section at the following URL:
So has anyone figured anything out? I am still having the issue and can't move forward with my FM12 migration. TSFalcon, is anyone at FileMaker working on this?
Thank you for the post.
FileMaker's Testing and Development departments are still narrowing this issue down.
At this time, the issue appears to be potentially related to hard drives.
Can anyone with this issue confirm or deny the following questions:
1. All Mac Minis experiencing this issue have FileMaker Server installed to either a SSD (Solid State Drive) or the new hybrid Fusion drive?
2. All Mac Minis experiencing this issue have at least one other peripheral drive plugged into the computer (FW800 or Thunderbolt HD) during the time of the kernel panics?
Any additional information is appreciated.
1. For me, yes. I am experiencing this on 3 different Mac Mini's, they all had Apple-supplied internal 256Gb SSD drives. Every Mac mini (+FMServer) that I've used with an SSD drive has had this same issue.
2. For me, yes. I have had either a FW800 drive or a Thunderbolt drive attached to the Mac Mini at all times during the issues.
Thanks for the follow up TSFalcon.
I don't know if this is good news or bad news...
1. My Mac Mini does not have either a SSD or hybrid drive. Mine is configured with two 1 TB (old fashioned, spinning) hard drives.
2. I do not have any other devices plugged in. Only things plugged in are an ethernet cable and power cable.
Please don't give up... I want to move to FM12 ASAP.
Same problem, Mac mini 10.8.2 with Hybrid drive and external drive for backups. Frequently reboots, java reported as the last thread in crash report.
So has anyone had any luck with 10.8.3?
Ok. I'm going to try this again. Can anyone confirm that 10.8.3 has fixed the issue? I personally have not seen a kernel panic since the upgrade over a week ago. I would love to know other's experience. I want to move my live databases over to FM12 but I need to confirm that this issue is resolved first.
