I am new in this forum,
My Oracle Linux Unbreakable 6.5 Machine restarted unexpectedly and randomly so friend check logs and ask me to stop “bmc-watchdog” as far my googling/research i found that “bmc-watchdog” is just a life saver for hung machine and for any reasons if server stuck it will automatically restarts.
Is it true ?

Whilst I can’t say I’m sure what’s going on here, this:
seems to suggest it’s an ipmi problem.
Maybe see if stopping the ipmi service makes the syslog entries disappear, and stops the reboot.
service ipmi stop
[oracle@erp ~]$ service ipmi status
ipmi_si module not loaded.
ipmi_devintf module not loaded.
/dev/ipmi0 does not exist.
Try starting the service then
service ipmi start
and see if that makes a difference.
