Hi,

We are getting random BSOD's on our sbs03 server (sp2) and can't seem to find out why.
After analysing the memory dump file, the following is given

UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP (7f)
This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
is always instant death (double fault).  The first number in the
bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
If kv shows a taskGate
        use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
        use .trap on that value
Else
        .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
        (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
Endif
kb will then show the corrected stack.
Arguments:
Arg1: 00000008, EXCEPTION_DOUBLE_FAULT
Arg2: f7737fe0
Arg3: 00000000
Arg4: 00000000

also this in the report....

It's an intel driver, but if that is the network card driver I don't know. It could also be a chipset driver. I'd get all the newest intel drivers needed for your system and install those.

This is a chipset driver. The latest and greatest can be downloaded from www.intel.com.

Thanks for the information, we've re-installed the intel chipset from Dell, as the intel chipset for the E7520 board doesn't exist on Intel's site anymore, fingers crossed we dont have any further crashes.
