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.
