Error after upgrade from 5.011 server to 6.5.2.

We upgraded our 5.011 server to 6.5.2. It was working well, more or less for two weeks, but after that we received a popup with the following text:

"Domino terminated abnormally. You can restart immediately after clicking ok"

Once we click on ok, we can start the server again. However, one hour later the same thing happens. There are no other error messages on the console or in the log.

That is a tough one. This is hard to diagnose, without any other error messages or information. I do have some ideas though. Can you think of anything that happened on your system before the first crash? Did you make any changes or install any software, just before this started happening? Also, look at the Domino server log file, to see if you can find any other error messages before the crash. And, keep in mind that you should not run any other software on the Domino server machine. Let it be a pure Domino server. (Unless it is a big IBM Unix or mainframe server which must be shared.)
