    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!
