PSOD on ESXi 5.5 Build 7967571 shows Exception 14

Hello guys.

Model Top: HP ProLiant DL380p G8

Model Bottom: HP ProLiant DL380 G7

ESXi Verison: ESXi 5.5 Build 7967571

I need your help in understanding this "Purple Screen of Death". Recently I've ran into the following two PSODs. Can you explain to me how I have to interprete these? And where can I find all the error codes (couldn't find them on Google)?

Thanks in advance :smileygrin:

Seems like PSOD is happening in lpfc_taskmgmt code. Upgrade the lpfc driver and HBA firmware to the latest compatible versions.

Cheers,

Thank you very much, but for what stands LPFC and HBA? (Maybe really idiotic but I'm new to this...)

lpfc is the driver your HBA (Host Bus Adapter) is using. HBA are the ones connecting your hosts to the storage box. (If there is a Fiber Channel switch in-between, HBAs will be going to the FC switch).
