The client is running Vmware esx 4.1 and has windows 2008 terminal servers running on them.
For some reason a couple times a week, the TS become unresponive and need to be rebooted. Cant find anything in the event viewer to help isolate the problem.

My VM terminal servers were doing that. It was Symantec Endpoint 11.x. I rolled them back to Symantec AV 10.x and they've been stable ever since.

All of the TS VM's have 4 GB of memory which should be enough and they all have the latest Microsoft updates on them.
