Please download and review the PDF attached to this tech doc. This serves as a guide to using the Microsoft Debug Diag Tool, and explains how to capture a dump file for an issue where a Service Desk process is crashing or hanging. Example instructions are included for setting up Crash dumps on the domsrvr.exe process, though similar steps can be followed for any process in your environment.

If you prefer video-based instructions, see this video for an example of how to install and use DebugDiag.

Captured process dumps can be uploaded to CA Support through a support case for review. Please be aware that the review of process dumps is an intricate process, and may take some time to complete. If you have any questions, please contact CA Support for more details.
