DL380 G3 Packaged Cluster 2.8Mhz

Kernel Memory(paged pool and nonpaged pool) on the DL380G3 cluster nodes installed with W2K Adv SP4, support pack 6.4.

Just by copying about 600MB data repeatedly on the same partition or intra partitions, Kernel memory shoots up from 30MB to more that 200MB in just about 20min. During the backup, nonpaged pool memory drastically increased and 2010 event id(not enough nonpaged memory) will be registered and the cluster node fails.

For trouble shooting, W2K Adv with SP1 was installed with all default options(only latest Smart Array 5i driver is seleted to recognise the disk). Even with this bare minimum OS, Kernel memory shoots up by copy data into the same partition.

During the process of trouble shooting all the Rompaqs and drivers were updated to the latest versions that are available in the HP support site.

Any have idea which driver/service/process that could be causing this problem.
