Server 2008 r2 Unexplained Reboot Investigation


  • Hello chaps,

                     I've been tasked with investigating why one of our servers has rebooted itself improperly. The server has 2 power supplies, 1 directly into the mains and 1 into a UPS. We do not think it is down to power loss/spike. After looking through the System Log I have found the following:

    11/02/2013 09:14:21 - Kernel Power - Event ID 41 - The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first.

    then at

    11/02/2013 09:14:42 - Bug Check - Event ID 1001 - The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was:

    0x0000000a (0xfffff8800ad11900, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff800016e9040). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\Minidump\021113-31343-01.dmp. Report Id: 021113-31343-01.

    Argh! pasted that line has changed my font/size!


    I don't know how to read these dump files, Would it be possible for somebody to explain how I can read this and make sense of it so I could find out the cause of the BSOD.
