SAN Boot Blade Freezing ?

Has anyone experienced SAN Boot Blade servers 'Freezing'.

We currently have the following:
HP BL20p G3 SAN Boot Server
Windows Server 2003
Connected to an EVA8000 XCS 5.110
Through Brocade Director 12000's Dual Fabrics.
Utilising MPIO Full Featured
Blade server has Qlogic HBA's installed.
All drivers and firmware are up to the required level for connection to the EVA8000 at XCS Version 5.110.

Server freezes then ASR's for no particular reason.

As this is SAN boot we cannot force a dump file which makes any further investigation difficult.

This is not Hardware specific as we have failed this over to our DR site (separate Blade, EVA8000, Blade chassis, Switches etc..) and it still does it.

This is not application specific as this has occurred on a File Server and a Landesk Application Server.

If anyone has come across this before any help would be appreciated.
