Take a look at http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1016837 and see if that helps - if not post the last few lines from the vpxd.log

Good Luck

Thanks for this. Very useful. The problem is, I cannot find the vpxd.log on the server.

On my 2008 R2 server they are in C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Logs

I think more generally they are in %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Logs

Note that ProgramData is a hidden folder

Good Luck

ok, found the logs, with an appended number.

I searched for the error in the vmware paper stated above, did not find that particular error.

Try disabling any of the plugins in vCenter and see how it goes.

Many of the vCenter abend/restart problems have to do with the database. Are you using the SQL Express database? If so is it possible that it has grown part the 4GB limit?

Check your database for any errors.
