    CRASH & purple screen on ESX 6.5.0 exception 14

      Hello,

      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?

      Screenshot attached.

      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,
