I have been having strange spinlock abends on one of my servers last week and now it happened on a second server last night.

The first server, NW 6.5 SP 1.1 basically only running file, iPrint and iFolder is getting "Kernel detected an attempted context switch while holding a spinlock" abend in Server.nlm and the second server is NW 6.5 SP 3 running GroupWise 6.5. It abended with "Deadlock detected waiting for spinlock currently owned by CPU 00" thread owned by NDMPD.NLM and process owned by LOADER.NLM. BackupExec is version 9.1 build 1152.4.

I've searched KB but don't find anything applicable to my scenario.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
