    eerrrrrrrmmmm.... sure must be beside my troubleshooting document for when parachutes fail to open... (very sorry i couldn't resist)

    Your company should have a AIX admin that must be capable of troobleshoot basic and advance problems with the OS, also your company should perform preventive tasks to avoid this unexpected downtimes... also most companies have 3rd level support contracts to support their AIX environments.

    The only reason for a AIX box to "go down" is hardware failure or corrupt software, in any case you should have a recent backup.
