I have a server 2003 system running in a vmware enviromet that will freeze in regular intervals. The server will run fine for 33 minutes then hang for about 51 seconds, run fine again for 1 minute and then hang again for 51 seconds and then starts the pattern over again. I have checked the event viewer and vmware events/alamrs to find any corresponding errors and there is nothing. I have checked processor utilization and memory utilization and those look fine also. I have also rebooted the server but the problem remains. Has anyone seen anything like this before?

does it have a snapshot?  check the snapshot manager and/or confirm by editing settings and see if the hd(s) names end with -00001 or something like that.

Do you have any PCI devices.  If so turn them off.  I've seen similar things happen with a bad PCI nic card or Esata card.  Also check the raid array (assuming you have one)  make sure it isn't in a degraded or rebuilding state.

Is there anything in the event logs? What applications do you have on that VM? If you stop the app or disable the services, does the problem go away?
Have you tried moving the VM to a different host?
You say CPU & RAM use are OK. Have you done a disk I/O check?
How full is the datastore that this VM is on?
