VM Shutdown Error (Unexpected)

Steve Harris
Steve Harris used Ask the Experts™
Random server/windows 10 VM's presenting Kernel error 41 on a host server.

VM's are Windows 10 and Server 2016

The Host server does not have any events in the error log that match up with the time/date of the events of the VM's unexpected shut downs.

The events are so random and nothing explains the events as far as I can tell through event logs or Microsoft forums.

Has anyone come across this?

Are both host and guests up to date patch wise?

Were any or all of them P2V lift and shifts (physical to virtual)?

Any memory dump files?

Patch wise, everything is current and up to date.

These were created virtual, nothing was physical

No dump files

This actually linked to a bkup issue and work shadow copy enabled. Disabling shadow copy and allowing the back ups to take completely over resolved
