Hy,

I'm looking for some kind of kernel analyser, Like lcrash for linux. The problem is that my server crashes and reboots without any noticable reason, the eventlog doesn't tell me anything and it hasn't done this in the past and haven't installed anything new since.

The main questions is : Does anyone know a tool or way to analyse what caused the exceptions that made my system reboot.

It's very annoing because this server makes backups of the internal network, and a reboot during a backup... #@{lkdqfj@|# my backup  

I hope some expert can help me

Greetings
Pieter

Hi Pieter,

Right-click "My computer" => "Properties" => "Advanced" => "Startup and recovery" => uncheck "automatically reboot"
Next time you should see a BSOD, please post the error code, or look it up yourself at http://www.aumha.org/win5/kbestop.htm for possible causes and solutions.

Greetings,

Thx, LucF
Your answer was a very good start, but I want to know the BSOD without having to wait for the next crash, because the server can't go offline when I'm abscent I can't turn the auto reboot on. So if a crash happens during the weekend, I haven't got to go to work, to restart a @#{[#@ server.

Does the info/error code get written in the memory.dmp file???

Greetings

I believe http:#10721894 is what Pieter is looking for, too bad we can't do some more troubleshooting.
