VMWare Server 2.x rudeunplug:operation on file - happening again

Host: Windows 2003 32-bit enterprise
guests: (6) windows 2003 32bit
storage: local SAS disks in the host - not shared, not SAN

Every couple of days I get the above mentioned error on only ONE of the guests.  The guest stops and I have to select Continue from the vmware server console.

I've run chkdsk on the guest disks (it has 2 vmdk's). and ghosted them to new vmdk files.

The guest gets a delyed write error or sometimes a bad block error in the event log.

The host gives me this in the app log (this is during the backup exec time)
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error WaitForMultipleObjects(1,00757FF8,1,120000) == 0x00000102.  hr = 0x8000ffff.

What type of backup exec job are you running? BESR, Backup Exec for Windows?

BEWS 12.5 on the windows host.  The backup job is configured to use AOFO, with auto-select the open file technology.  Backing up to tape - i.e., not a b2D job.

The vmdk file for the guest is not overly large - only 34gb.

No go - the issue is still occurring - just had to hit "continue" on the host again this morning.  Any thoughts?
