Often PSODs (Purple Screen of Death) Crashes are caused by faulty hardware or faulty drivers.

Does the issue happen often and ca it be repeated, or is it just a one off ?

1. Update ALL firmware on the HOST available.

2. Is the HOST on the HCL and certified for 6.5 U1.

3. Update ESXi version to latest available.

4. Are you using vanilla ESXi from VMware or OEM version from vendor ?

5. Have you checked hardware for faults, using hardware diagnostics ?

6. Checked fans, CPUs, network interface firmware ?

7. Checked storage controller firmware ?
