One of our DC was rebooted 3 times in 10 days. There was no patch applied onto it. We've collected memory dump file (150+ MB in size). How can I read this file?

And what are the possible things that I may need to check?

Best regards,
Anupam

Hi
Please download and install windbg for the dated Previous Release version 6.11.1.404 - March 27, 2009.

Set symbol file file path "SRV*c:\symbols\*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

Then open Windbg-> File-> Open Memory dump and selet path.
Then ! analyze-v and also so many switches to read the memory dump.
