Trying to read a .dmp file that was created by FM Server


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

Windows Server 2012

Description of the issue

After recovering from a system crash, FMS created a .dmp file in the logs directory.  My understanding is the FMI are the only ones who can read these. 

I'm requesting help in reading this file and diagnosing what exactly happened to cause this file to be written.  I can send the file through email, once I've been given instructions to where.

Steps to reproduce the problem

no way known.  This is the first time I've seen this file.

Expected result

To be able to read the file by myself instead of asking for help.

Actual result


Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

That's what I'm asking help for

Configuration information

Windows Server 2012, 2 Xeon 2.5GHz processors, 24GB memory, virtually on a VMWare ESX host.
