Hi,
I have some troubles with backup tasks on a VM Windows 2008 R2 hosted on ESXi 4.1 (last release) (free hypervisor)
Sometimes backup works correctly, sometimes i have a Data Protector error 4049 (scsi problems)
and sometimes a PSOD on the host ... with error PF Exception 14
i have configured generic scsi device as explained in the vmware kb1016407

Exception 14 usually points to bad hardware or drivers.

I would quickly run a memory test or diagnostics on youre server.
