Hi All,

i'm running WIndows Server 2008 R2 Non-SP1 with vCenter Server 5.5 Update 3d - 2016-04-14

in this directory C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Local\CrashDumps I can see that there is lots of large files 600 MB+ with the name like WmiPrvSE.exe.6292.dmp

So  I wonder what's happening here ?

wmi is a Management Instrumentation (WMI) is a component of the Microsoft Windows operating system that provides management information and control in an enterprise environment.

Developers use the wmiprvse.exe file in order to develop applications used for monitoring purposes. These programs can notify users about important events related to network and file or application management right after each event occurs.

read the crash dump may be any incompatible app running on it ?

check mini-dump which should be smaller than 40 Mb which can anlyze using online tools

Just delete them and see if they reoccur.

I would also consider DUMPING Windows for vCenter Appliance!
