Hello Experts,

I am a system admin with an issue that is been going on for about a week now. We began to receive BSOD on or window system. When I check the .dmp it points to hardware, but there was no change across several data center in different states. I tried re setting cables, adjusting HAVAC temp, and rolled back updates. Everything points to hardware, but I check two system personally, and it is still odd that it is happening across data centers.

attached is a screenshot from one of our kvm's

thanks

Hello,

I did some quick searching and came across a couple things.  Does the server have any SSD drives?  If so, there might be a firmware update.  In the server, the CMOS battery might be bad, or might need to be reseated.

The pages below may also be of help:

a stop F4 is CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
did you identify the process in the dump file?
when this happens again, did you look at each dump file and see if it's the same process each time?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
