VSS Shutting Down Hyper-V Host

I have a Windows 2008 R2 machine that has 4 VMs on it.  Lately it has been having problems where the VMs randomly reboot or shut down.  Tonight, I tried to reboot the server remotely because I could not turn on one of the VMs because VSS had locked a portion of the VHD file and the server hung on the shutdown process.  Help!  How do I find out what is causing these VSS related issues?
