BAD_POOL_CALLER, BSOD Windows 2003 Guest – VMWare ESXi 5 [SOLVED]

In ambienti virtuali VMWare ESXi è strano ricevere schermate blue (BSOD – blue screen of death) di Microsoft. L’hardware in ambienti virtuali non da’ problemi di driver da scatenare errori gravi di questo tipo.

Esiste una casistica specifica legata da VMWare 5.x, vmware tools installate in modalità totale e Microsoft Windows 2003 Server. Se siete in questo caso e avete questa schermata, di seguito la soluzione.

BAD_POOL_CALLER
BAD_POOL_CALLER BSOD Windows 2003 Server STD

Se si analizza il file .dmp nel sistema operativo ( c:\windows\minidump\ ) con il software gratuito “Blue Screen Viewer” ( http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html ) e nello stack è presente il driver vsepflt.sys è sufficiente toglierlo dalla memoria ed evitare che al reboot venga caricato. Questo è un driver presente nelle versioni vmware-tools installate in modalità full (anzichè typical) introdotto dalla versione VMWare ESXi 5.x.

Il documento ufficiale per questa operazione a soluzione è il kb di vmware descritto al link https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2034490 .

Soluzione.

  1. Click Start > Run, type cmd and press Enter to open a command prompt.
  2. To view the currently loaded filters, run the command:

    C:\> fltmc

    Filter Name             Num Instances  Altitude      Frame
    ----------------------  -------------  ------------  -----
    vsepflt                         5       328200         0
    luafv                           1       135000         0

  3. To unload the vsepflt driver, run the command:

    C:\> fltmc unload vsepflt

  4. To prevent the vsepflt driver from loading on subsequent reboots:

    Note: Before making any registry modifications, ensure that you have a current and valid backup of the registry and the virtual machine. For more information on backing up and restoring the registry, see the Microsoft article 136393.

    1. Click Start > Run, type regedit, and press Enter. The Registry Editor window opens.
    2. Navigate to:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\vsepflt

    3. Locate the StartDWORD.
    4. Right-click Start and click Modify.
    5. Change the value to 4 and click OK.
    6. Click File > Exit to close the Registry Editor.

      Note: For more information on the Services subkeys, see the Microsoft article CurrentControlSet\Services Subkey Entries.

Note: If you are using vShield Endpoint for antivirus protection, please file a support request with VMware Technical Support and note this Knowledge Base article ID (2034490) in the problem description. For more information, see Filing a Support Request in My VMware (2006985).
