Our new 2008 R2 server rebooted for no known reason. In checking the event logs I cam across this event;

bugcheck was: 0x000000d1 (0xfffffa8552239538, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff88001286ef2). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 122912-15943-01.

This server has been running for  6 months with no problem, I am looking for help in finding the cause.

Zip the dump file and attach it with your next comment, or better, first change the settings of your server to create small memory dumps and not full memory dumps, then wait until the next crash, and after that attach the zipped file of your dump.

Any hardware added or software installed?  Any backup software installed recently?

I can't zip the large dump file small enough to attach. How do I setup to create a small dump file?

Right click "Computer", select "Properties", "Advanced System Settings", the Advanced tab, under "Startup and Recovery" select "Settings", and under "System Failure" you can change from "Kernel memory dump" to "Small Memory Dump". Below that it also shows you where the dumps will get saved.
