DNS shuts down sporadically

We have a domain controller that is a VM on a server running Server 2008 with Hyper-V role.
The VM is running Server 2008 as well.  We have noticed that sporadically the DNS stops and we have to log into the server and restart the service in order for computers on the network to get online since its using the dns of the DC.

We have rebuilt the DNS on this domain controller thinking there was an issue and it still keeps going down.  It just happens randomly.  The last time this happened was over 3 months ago.  It has gone down twice this morning.

Can someone point me in the right direction as to why this is going down?  Fix?

Thanks in advance.
