The server keeps shutting down every couple of days.  The backplane was replaced 3 weeks ago and all was fine until last week. Shut down Saturday and again today.  No messages until today, BSOD with Kernal_Data_Inpage_Error 0x0000007a.  Also AFD.sys /address error.  This is a DC, and a file server.  This is a Intel server with SATA drives in a hot swap backplane and SAS/SATA controller.  2 -  WD 320GB drives in RAID1 for OS, 4 - WD 1TB drives in RAID10 for data.  All drives are SATA Enterprise drives.

TIA, Tim

I realize that it may not answer your question but it may give further insight as to what the problem might be. I am seeing everything from bad blocks on the hard disk to bad RAM.

You really need to have a look at your dmp files for more information.

not the most fun thing in the world, and a little time consuming, but afd.sys could mean absolutely anything .

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Whenever a computer running Windows suddenly reboots without displaying any notice or blue screen of death, the first thing that is often thought about is a hardware failure.

In reality, most crashes are caused by malfunctioning device drivers and kernel modules. In case of a kernel error, most computers running Windows do not show a blue screen unless they are configured to do so. Instead these systems suddenly reboot without any notice.

WhoCrashed shows the drivers which have been crashing your computer with a single click. In most cases it can pinpoint the offending drivers which have been causing misery on your computer system in the past. It does post-mortem crashdump analysis and presents all gathered information in a comprehensible way.

WhoCrashed relies on the Windows Debugging Package (WinDbg) from Microsoft. If this is not installed, WhoCrashed will download and extract this package automatically for you.
 
Download it and check if this will help you or not but I am sure it will help you because I have used it on my environment before and it helped me on solve the problem:

Hi Tim,

Here is a microsoft article that describes how to examine a small memory dump file. You can use this file to determine why your computer has stopped responding :
