It's an old version of 5.1, this is the original build release GA.

It certainly would be good idea, to upgrade to the latest 5.1 Build available to download.

Also update all firmware on the server to the latest.

1. What is the server?

2. Is it on the HCL?

3. Check all the hardware, fans, memory, heatsinks, checked memory reseated, checked CPU fans?

4. Can you reproduce the fault?

5. does it happen more than once?

6. Are you using an OEM version of ESXI 5.1 for your server ?

7. What network interface are you using in the VMs? e.g. are you using VMXNET3, you should be?

8. What OS is in use, are the Guest OS supported ?

from the PSOD, it's difficult to state, it's xyz....
