Are you using remote control software or some antivirus tools on this server? If so check for updates from them.

You could also zip the last 3 *.dmp files (usually located in the Windows\minidump folder), then attach the zip file in your next post here.

If the Server is set to create full dumps they probably won't be in that folder. Make sure to set it to create minidumps and not full dumps, as that is quite adequate.

check the datastore latency, read and write, check datastore for errors, bottlenecks?

it's it an NFS datastore?

do you have any other VMs on the datastore?

any event logs in the Windows 2003 machine, referring to disk timeouts?

I'd just change that setting for making small dumps for the future. It wastes less disk-space and also saves time.
