BSOD help please

Specs: Server 3003 STD SP2, (2) 2833 MHz Intel(R) 4GB RAM Pentium(R) III processor, Model 23 Stepping 6
I have a very important production server and it has all of a sudden started blue screening regularly.

This bx is so customised I really need it up and running again, usually when something gets this back since Im running in a VMware ESX environemnt Id just whip up a new server and port the data over.

Stop error: 0x00000050 (0xbad0b118, 0x00000000, 0x8095e378, 0x00000000)

Any ideas? Ive put in new RAM, swapped physical servers just to make sure the underlying hardware wasnt the issue and it's not, the machine blue screen no matter which phyical server I run. If you do not know much about virtual environments thats ok, I wouldnt get too hung up on that and more concentrate on the windows box itself.

I really appreciate anyone helping me out with this.

Is it the Kernel OS that is blue screening or one of the VMs? When does it blue screen; is it on bootup? The only guess I can make with what you have provided is that you have a hard drive that is failing. If that is the case I would do a system state backup and put in a new hard drive. Would also need to know if you are running RAID hard drives or not. We need more information.

ace_omega: Is it the Kernel OS that is blue screening or one of the VMs?
ESX, the host system, runs a lightweight, modified, Linux-biased kernel. Its kernel panics are pink. (And now you know.)

Something at 0x8095e378 tried to read the (presumably freed) memory location 0xbad0b118.

Given its virtual nature, we can ignore the hardware related problems. It's probably VMTools, but make sure the server's files aren't corrupted. (Sfc /scannow, and verify every SAN it has used is healthy.)
