Our VMs are shutting down after these alarms appear in the logs.


Alarm 'Virtual machine total disk latency' on
LANWSRV03 changed from Green to Gray
info
4/9/2012 11:45:27 AM
Alarm 'Virtual machine memory usage' on
LANWSRV03 changed from Green to Gray
info
4/9/2012 11:45:27 AM
Alarm 'Virtual machine cpu usage' on
LANWSRV03 changed from Green to Gray
info
4/9/2012 11:45:27 AM
Changed resource allocation for LANWSRV03
info
4/9/2012 11:45:27 AM

The VM then powers off and need to manually turn it back on. Can not seem to isolate the cause as all the other VMs seem unaffected.

There are no snapshots currently and the datastore appears to be working fine.
