what does this ESX PSOD mean?

My ESX 4 host had a PSOD today and part of the message was

"exception 14 in world 4303; vmkiscsid ip"

I know that exception 14 is a page fault and occurs when the page being requested has not been successfully loaded into memory. But I don't know what the second (VMKISCSI) part referencens

It was the drivers for the VC Flex-10 Ethernet Module. Updated from HP, that seems to have fixed it

Most exception 14s are caused by hardware, or non certified hardware.

Is this just random, or can you reproduce this error?

What storage are you using? iSCSI or NFS?
