When you restart a Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based computer that is using a Microsoft iSCSI Boot Initiator 2.03 boot solution, an event is logged in the System event log that resembles the following:
Event ID: 49 Source: FTDISK Description: "Configuring the Page file for crash dump failed. Make sure there is a page file on the boot partition and that it is large enough to contain all physical memory."
This event is logged because iSCSI boot systems currently do not support crash dump file generation. Until that support is available, this event can safely be ignored.
To resolve this issue, install the hotfix that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 939875. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
