Netware 6.5SP8 abends server.nlm

Hi,

since a few days, one of our Netware 6.5SP8 server abends every night with strange infos in abend.log (see below, stack --CCCCCCCC ?)
Server is an HP ML370 G4 with 3GB ram.
The server is running file and print services, DNS, DHCP, ZenWorks Imaging Server, Symantec Anti-Virus and Symantec Netbackup
eDir is version 8.8SP4.

After the second abend, I applied the modifications recommended in Support | Memory Fragmentation Issue with NetWare 6.0 and 6.5 (step 1 to 4). But apparently it did not fix the problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
tks in advance.

Thierry

We're going to need to see the full log entry for abend 0 as that will show
NLM versions, etc.

An obvious question though is what changed a few days ago?

That would be Abend 1, but yes - this Abend 2 is on little diagnostic value, as memory is already corrupted by the previous abend.
