I mean an OS image.

I wish I did, because then it might actually be helpful. This was during one of my testing windows on a UV system. I reported a problem to SGI, and once they looked at it they fixed it. The only information that I got was there was an error in the OS image. The other symptoms this machine had (and I don't know if these were separate or a function of the same problem) was that certain commands would take way longer than expected. For example, running useradd took between 5 and 10 minutes. passwd took the same amount of time.
