I'm sure it's possible somehow, but it may involve getting your hands
dirty. You could try:
- Take a copy of the suspend image (if that's possible) as a backup,
since the next step will destroy it.
- Resume it, _paused_ (xe vm-resume uuid=xxx paused=true, I think).
- Attach kdd to it. I believe kdd ships in the most recent XenServer.
- Use windbg from another VM to extract a crashdump. If it's a recent
version of Windows kdd may not recognise it, but it can
probably be taught to.
Disclaimer: I'm not a member of the XenServer engineering or support
teams, and this does _not_ count as a supported feature of XenServer.
This is just random speculation you found on the internet. :)
