Not getting Crash Dumps

I have a problem with three DL 380 servers running Windows 2008 that continue to blue screen, any help would be greatly appreciated.

BSOD Error
STOP:0x00000019 (0x0000000000000021, 0xfffffA8019D24000,

I have logged a call with both HP and Microsoft to help resolve but so far they have been unable to identify the problem. Unfortunately for some reason Iâ  m not getting kernel dumps. After turning ASR off when the servers blue screen they just sit there, with the last event being initializing disk for crash dumpâ ¦..

I tried pretty much everything I (and Microsoft and HP) can think of to get dumps working. I have listed all the steps Iâ  ve taken so far to get the memory dumps.

Action taken so far:
â ¢ set a manual crash dump to initialsize 9000 and maximumsize 9000 so that our paging file is definitely greater than RAM (even though it's a kernel dump
â ¢ Set Crash control to auto reboot HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl
â ¢ Installed the latest firmware and driver for the HP Smart Array P400 controller.
â ¢ Removed physical memory, leaving only 8G
â ¢ System board has been replaced by HP
â ¢ NC364T, Quad port NIC has been replaced by HP

My configuration is as follows:
â ¢ Proliant DL380 G5, Product ID 458561-421
â ¢ iLO2 Advanced enabled, Firmware 1.70
â ¢ System ROM P56
â ¢ Dual Fans, Dual quad core processors
â ¢ Smart Array P400 RAID controller, Firmware 5.26
â ¢ Raid controller configured as 1 logical volume, 2 drive mirror, with on online spare, 3 drives total
â ¢ 1 QUAD Port NC364T card installed
â ¢ 32GB Memory

Re: Not getting Crash Dumps

Exactly the same error here on a Blade BL460c G1 on W2K3 x64 SP2.

Since two days the server is getting the BSOD every 15mins.

Need urgent help.
