We are experiencing some problems with Intel ASC 4.4 on 3420GPLC and 3420GPRX motherboards, on 3 out of 20 installed servers we get BSOD every few weeks. We have a different combination of firmware and driver versions (latest, one version old, few versions old), and 2008 32bit and 2008R2 operating systems. Bellow is minidump crash analysis. Does anybody have simmlar issuses or resoultion of this problem ?
Can you please provide more details on the system configuration you have ?
Firmware level, BIOS, BMC, FRU
Operating System version and service pack
Can you also please attach a SEL log ?
Or you can contact Intel Customer Support at http://www.intel.com/support/9089.htm as they can provide immediate help and a path to escalation if needed.
3420GPLC MBO, Xeon X3430, 2008 32-bit/SP2 . While exporting SEL from IASC, I've noticed that i have a gap in SEL (when viewed from IASC in date range 09/28/2011-12/02/2011). Exporting through IPMI connection works ok. BSOD was on 10/15/2011 and 11/28/2011, and system was rebooted via frontpanel. In both cases, after rebooting SEL recorded temperature, current, voltage and fan events. Also, debugging details for 11/28/2011 are slightly different:
Caused by a session driver not freeing its pool allocations prior to a
session unload. This indicates a bug in win32k.sys, atmfd.dll,
rdpdd.dll or a video driver.
Arg1: 00000001, session ID
Arg2: 00000608, number of paged pool bytes that are leaking
Arg3: 00000000, number of nonpaged pool bytes that are leaking
Arg4: 00000001, total number of paged and nonpaged allocations that are leaking.
nonpaged allocations are in the upper half of this word,
paged allocations are in the lower half of this word.

We have already tested RAM for corruption and no errors where found. I need to mention that we have 20 indenticaly configured servers, same drivers, same OS and patch level.. All of them are power up in the morning, and powered off around 19-21 pm. Additionaly, UPS is also powered down, so MBO and BMC have fresh start every day.
Additionaly, we had same BSOD problem on 3420GPRX MBO, same CPU with current available firmware on 2008R2. In both cases, we are using Active System console 4.4.
My best guess is a bug in IMB or video driver, since system does not have any video at the moment of crash.
The log event you sent indicates a pattern of what you described with a daily power off/on.
On the day you said that a BSOD was experienced, 10/15/2011

Was there an event or BIOS message that showed up on screen when this stop occurred ?
Also, on the other systems that do not blue screen, do they have IASC installed on them ?
Do you have any application (a part from IASC) that maybe causing the BSOD ? Do all of the non-failing systems have identical applications installed as compared to the failing systems ?
Can you run the SELVIEW utility & sysinfo & attach the results ? I know you did mention you were having issues exporting the SEL via IASC, can you run a separate SEL & SysInfo dump ?
