I have exactly the same problem!
But I am using Hyper-V instead of Vmware.
The error is the same.
I had 2 support cases on that.
But support cannot solve the issue.
Last time I increased one partition of the effected VM and since then it didn't failed again. Until last weekend.
I get a lot of Dcom errors and some hours later the VM is stucked.
Only a kill of the worker process on the hyper-V host will initiate a reboot of the effected VM (it happend only on one VM, Exchange server).
I have no more ideas...
