I'm using ESXi 6.5.0 Releasebuild 5310538 without any problems till now.
Today i got a purple screen with exception 14.
I used the search function of this forum, read through some threads and posts and i found out that sometines its a hardware problem , sometines a software failure but it also could be (on older versions) a problem with the network card.
How can i know how to follow up on this? Any suggestions what to check or what to do?
A cold reboot of the system solved the problem for now but i want to find the root cause.
I'll now go and collect all neccessary log files.
Thank you for your help,
I checked my ESXi Version with the installed firmware of the server.
There were some incompatabilities between BIOS version/ DELL PERC controller and my installed VMware ESXi Version.
I now updated all my firmware to the latest as well as the ESXi Version to fit the compatabilities mentoined in the VMware Compatability Guide.
Since i did that there were no crashes again.
