Resolution

mdmp file is a compressed file created by Windows Server after a program gets in error or crashes. It contains data “dumped” from the program’s memory space.
It saves information about the error, which can be used for debugging. They can also be sent to Microsoft as part of a bug reporting process.

MDMP can be analyzed using WinDmp, a debugging program that is part of the Microsoft Windows SDK.Your Server administrator would be able to help you with this.
