I am receiving the following error in the event logs on most of my new Virtual Server 2008 R2 machines. It will appear every few seconds for a long period, then it will disappear for a while.

Is it anything to be concerned about?

The hosts are all running ESXi 5.1 and running the appropriate VMWare tools.

Thanks for that. The even now seems to have stopped.
However, now I can see a new event that has started since the updates.

This is a new question really, but another and different bug!

This is a known issue affecting VMware Tools 5.1.
