WHM server Kernel Oops

Hey Guys,

I am running a whm/cpanel on CENTos server on a vm (VMware workstation)...which is running on a server 2003 machine.

Since last few weeks I have been getting this email from the server. Not sure how can I resolve this issue.

I have enough memory assigned to the host and the VM.
Please help.

IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
Your kernel had an Oops!

This is the result of bad hardware or a kernel bug.
Your system may continue to function as normal, however there is a good chance bad things are happening right now.
      Bad things include: files disappearing, daemons crashing,
      complete server crashs, disk corruption and many others.

You might want to check your RAM with memtest86 as this is usually the cause of the problem.

do you have any problems with the 2003 server as the error points to faulty memory althought thinking about it the memory can be used by vmware so it might not affect your server so can you test your memory with memtest
