It's not obvious form your screenshot what alert there is?

Do you see any Alarm events in Alarms for the VM, of any tasks and events in the host.

If you DO NOT see any events, per VM....

I have seen this before, and this could be the phantom alerts which occur with VMware vSphere vCenter 5.0 HA in operation, it's a BUG.

A few methods to try and resolve the issue

0. Restart the virtual machine.

1. Restart Network Management Agents on each Host.

2. Reconfigure each host for HA.

3. Disable and Enable HA again.

4. Restart the Host.

This could remove the alerts, but in my experience, these alerts will re-appear.

Finally, UPDATE your vCenter 5.0 and ESXi 5.0 to the latest and last version e.g. 5.0 U3.

You should look at the alarm and find out what's exactly the error being reported, as there might still be problems left laying around.

Just Select the Alarms Tab and have a look there, or add it on this question.

High Availability?

I assume as you have a cluster, this is enabled ?
