I have a VMware server running ESX Server 3i 3.5.0 Build 226117.
It an HP DL380 G5 Server running an HP Tape Autoloader. Windows Server 2003 with Backup Exec.
The trouble is that sometimes the server locks up with PSOD (Purple Screen of Death) on backups. not always and i think ive narrowed it down to Full Backups. See Image.
I think its an issue with the current card in the machine and am looking to replace it.
How does this card fair up with VMware? I have checked the VCL which makes no sense to me whatsoever!
Has anyone got any opinions on this card? (its actually the one thats currently in the server too) or maybe some tried and tested alternatives?
