Purple screen

Jump to solution

Suddenly during daytime production one of my ESXi 5.5 hosts crashes with a purple screen.

The error is Exception 14.


At the bottom of the screen it says "Partial dump: Out of space"

So it seems that is cannot make a Coredump to disk.


What can cause this problem? This is the third crash in 4 months.



See attached image for details.

Thanks, I've upgraded my ESXi hosts. Hopefully the purple screen no longer appears!
