Was there nothing in the Windows OS Event log? Assuming Windows ?

Have you looked at the vmware.log in the virtual machine folder?

and check the /var/log folder in the host.

Did the host restart ?

To check why the virtual machine has been shutting down, you will need to view the logs.

1. Event logs in the VM OS.

2. vmware.log in the VM folder.

3. /var/logs/vmkernel.log on the host.
