The crash was caused by a corrupted model. The SpectroServer crashed while creating sub-interfaces for this model.

The model handle can be determined from the .dmp generated file in the $SPECROOT\SS\Support directory. Collect the dump and open a Support case and attach the dump file.
The Engineering team will be able to identify the offending model.

The crash is caused by a corrupted model. Once the model handle has been identified, determine it's type.

If the above model is a device model, then you can delete and re-discover the device.

If the above model is an application model, then you will need to initialize to a legacy DB and then load the models only (-m) load from a previously saved good DB backup.
