Windows 2008 BSOD on RDBSS.SYS

I applied windows updates to this server last night and after the updates, it blue screens as soon as I hit CTL-ALT-DEL.   It is running on VMware V5.0.0 and seems to boot fine until the login.   To complicate matters further, it is a domain controller.  Not the only one, but the main one and the main file server as well.   I see plenty of references to Windows 7 and Wndows 2008 R2, but this system is Windows 2008, not R2.    I realize that I am not providing much to go on, but I can not seem to get it to log in far enough to gather more details or get the minidump.    I tried last known good, but as expected, that gave the same results.   I am trying safe mode now, but it seems hung right after crcdisk.sys loads.   I do not have a snapshot to roll back to.

The BSOD error is RDR_FILE_SYSTEM.  The stop error is 0x27 and the module is rdbss.sys.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

OK, I was able to grab the minidumps during a reboot.  Here are the last couple.

According to MS this issue occurs because the Redirected Drive Buffering SubSystem (Rdbss.sys) driver incorrectly frees a file control block (FCB) object two times.

I had found that very early on but it was not much help at all.   Especially because it was Win7\2008R2.

I needed to resolve this last night or start a recovery plan.   I ended up contacting Microsoft.   They felt that the updates were not successful and the module was either corrupt or had not been updated in sync with other corequisites.   They used a completely unrelated Vista hotfix to update the rdbss.sys file.   Server booted and ran fine after that.  

For anyone else, the hotfix they used was from KB article 976674.

Thanks for responding.
