crash test notmyfault for Integrity servers

Does anyone know if there is a crash test utility like notmyfault to test windows 2003 crash dumps? I downloaded notmyfault from mircosoft's x64 internals, but I get the following when running it:

The image file NotMyfault.exe is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine.

I'm assuming this is because it is an integrtiy server.

Thanks,

Howard

Re: crash test notmyfault for Integrity servers

I don't think Itanium version of NotMyfault is available. The version which you got would only work with Native-64 platforms i.e. Non-Intel Itanium.

Have tou tried "windbg" ?
Take a look at these links for more information. It's a part of Debugging Tools suit.

The kernel debug guide is helpful for reference.

Hi Howard,

You can test the crash dump capability of an Integrity system by logging onto the Management Port (MP), and going to the console and at the SAC for that partition you can run the "cashdump" command.
Another method, also available through the MP, is that you can run the TC command (transfer of control) from the MP's CM> prompt.

I believe both methods generate a Stop 0xE2.

These techniques are also useful if you are unfortunate enough to have a OS hang - the dump can then be used to analyse the cause of the failure.

HTH,
Ian
