We have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 running Windows Server 2003 R2, Enterprise x64 with Service Pack 2 installed.
Recently, we've been experiencing multiple STOP errors occurring with that server. Fortunately it is in place as a fail over machine so it is not currently affecting our production environment. The error that shows up in the server log is this:
Event Type: Error Event Source: System Error Event Category: (102) Event ID: 1003 Description: Error code 000000000000009c, parameter1 0000000000000004, parameter2 fffffadf90881240, parameter3 00000000f2000000, parameter4 0000000000060151.
So far the best I've been able to track down is that the 9C error is some sort of generic hardware problem. The other parameters have been no use in narrowing this one down.
There have been no hardware changes since the machine was brought into service last year. It has a twin box that is identical (the primary that this one acts as a fail over for) that is not experiencing the behavior. The last software change was on 4/16/2009 when several security updates were applied. The blue screens started happening on 5/9/2009.
Are there any diagnostics that may help with tis problem?
