Hi all,

A customer of ours has a windows 2003 SP1 server, which has suffered 2 blue screens in one week.

On 23/6 the code was 0x0000004e (0x0000009a, 0x00003b08, 0x00000006, 0x00000002)

Today the code was 0x000000ab (0x00000003, 0x000018d0, 0x00000000, 0x00000046)


Especially about the last one there are some clear answers in MS knowledgebase (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=901150 and
 
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=907242) , but i find it rather strange the 1st blue screen from 1 week ago is completely different.

Hopefully someone can help me out.

Logs of both blue screens can be found at http://rapidshare.de/files/24825687/Mini062306-01.dmp.html and

http://rapidshare.de/files/24825722/Mini070306-01.dmp.html

Many thanks in advance!

Hi,

I can't access Rapid Share sites from work. Has anything been changed on the system recently?

You can use the Windows Debugging Tools to analyse the memory.dmp file that should be in your C:\windows or c:\winnt folder. Copy this to a workstation and install the debugging tools and then use Windbg to analyse the dump file to try to help figure it out.

http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/installx86.mspx

You'll need to add the following setting to the symbol file path within the Windbg tool
SRV*c:\temp*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

Hi,

I ran windbg with the correct symbol file path with the bug check of yesterday; results :

I am not sure how to interpret the results, although if i am looking into it i think the cure could be in http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=907242 ?  Am i correct in this ?

Yes. It may be that. I would also download and update the video driver for the system.

Yeah its going to take some monitoring before you know for sure. I always wondered if they reviewed anything before handing out the patch Now I know.

Thanks.
