Analyzing Memory.DMP for Windows Server 2008

Hi Experts,

I am trying to troubleshoot a BSOD. I have copied the memory.dmp from the server 2008 to my windows 7 machine.

When I run the Windows debugging tool, I get the output (See attachment). Please advise me the best way to analyse the file.

Many Thanks,

Use the Microsoft Symbol Server to obtain debug symbol files

Although I have never seen lack of symbols cause that issue...

You are also opening it from File>open Crash Dump?

BlueScreenView v1.35 - View BSOD (blue screen) crash information stored in dump files.
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

This is another good tool to help you identify the causes of the BSOD. Often find it is all I need. Not always 100% accurate (similar to an '!analyze -v' in windbg", without the need for the full debugger), but can often point you in the right direction, without the need for debugging skills....

You can directly open the dump file using the command line from within the debugger directory:
windbg -z c:\windows\memory.dmp
If you still have the same error, then you can try this command line from the debugger directory:
dumpchk c:\windows\memory.dmp
This command line is useful to check if a dump is corrupt or no.
In your case to be honnest I never saw a dump like this one so I wonder if it's not corrupt.
The following article also provides a description of the utility:

Let me me know if the command line reports "Finished dump check" at the end of its output.

If you attach the memory dump one of us can run the analysis for you also.
