Windows 7: Unexpected bsod on server

Unexpected bsod on server - fixed: raid monitor crash

Our server, running Windows 7 Professional 64bit as host for several Virtualbox guests, had a bsod last night, during the backup routine. This is the first time such a thing has happened since the server was put into production this March 2012. The bsod occurred while all the guests were shut down and the main guest, SBS2003, was getting copied.
Could anyone please let me know what happened?

This text was in the after-reset-boot-up popup "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown":
Code:
 
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48

C:\Windows\Minidump\102412-14430-01.dmp

This was in the Event Viewer System log, after the reset & reboot:
System, Error, BugCheck, event ID 1001
Code:
 
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000f4 (0x0000000000000003, 0xfffffa80541ecb30, 0xfffffa80541ece10, 0xfffff80002de4510). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\Minidump\102412-14430-01.dmp. Report Id: 102412-14430-01.
The zip contains the files from the Seven Forums Diagnostic Tool, as well as the two files mentioned in the after-reset-boot-up popup (these are in the bsod folder in the zip).

Thanks very much for looking into this!

I noticed that the system events file in the zip only seems to go up to June this year. Here's an Event Viewer save with the last seven days' system events. The bugcheck error report shows at 10/24/2012 7:12:46 AM.

The first debug says it was csrss.exe, which as I understand will cause a system failure if it crashes. The second debug apparently doesn't know what caused the error. Any thoughts?

F4 is usually storage/hard drive related.

Thanks for the idea, KoolKat!

Here's my disk screenshots. (I'll have to wait to use CrystalDiskInfo until the weekend when no one's working.) I have 3 RAID 1 mirrors, with 6 one-TB drives. I checked about SeaTools: what I saw says that program doesn't work on a RAID, so I'll need to swap out drives on the mirrors to test each individual drive on another computer; fortunately I have a spare 1-TB around here I can use.

I'll also do a consistency check on each mirror, maybe that might show something.

I'll report back...

This solitary crash looks like it came from a program called Advanced SystemCare. This is one of those apps that are rather iffy at how they accomplish their tasks, so it's preferred that this program not be used. Big names in Windows development and troubleshooting like Mark Russinovich will tell you that registry cleaners and "performance apps" in general aren't reliable and can often cause more harm than good.

Koolkat: I installed and ran CrystalDiskInfo and received a "Disk Not Found" error. Guess I should have checked their FAQs (FAQ): "CrystalDiskInfo does not support RAID disks and IDE (Parallel ATA) and Serial ATA disks connected external ATA controller." My 3 RAID1 mirrors, as reported in my System Specs, wouldn't show up.
Do you know if running chkdsk on a RAID1 is good, as in, have you ever done it or received good reports about doing it? I see conflicting reports on the web. I did consistency checks on all three mirrors and received good bills of health on all three. It'll take a bit of time to pop out each drive and rebuild the mirrors, so I might just wait to see if this error happens again. Maybe it's just a cosmic-ray-induced fluke.

Interesting thought, Vir. I'm the only person who runs anything on this computer, I doubt my boss even knows the password to log on without having to consult the notes I left him, and I'm sure he couldn't find them again without my telling him where they are. I know I've never run any form of speed optimization or registry cleaner on it, and certainly nothing called "Advanced Systemcare" - I had to google it to find out what it was I also have Vipre Antivirus on it, and I scan every download manually, and haven't had any bad bugs get in.
Could you please let me know what indicated to you this software may have been run on this server?

Easy: check the process name in the !analyze -v output. It'll show you the process that was currently running at the time of the crash in the latest thread context. The process that was running was ASCService Creator.exe (name partially trimmed in output), which googling will show it's part of Advanced SystemCare. Perhaps indeed it was one of those programs that was inadvertently installed through another application's installer.

OK, I got what you're showing, Vir. I did a search on the computer and found the ASCServiceCreator.exe. Turns out it's part of the Intel Server control software which I can use to remotely monitor the RAIDs. So the program is OK, just seems to be named the same as that registry malware you warned against. And, since it's the RAID monitor, then it was hard-drive related, like Koolkat said.

Thanks to you both for the help! Sounds to me like a fluke. I'll report back if I get any further data. Thanks again!
