VM shutting down unexpectly: strange firewall events in log before.

VM shutting down unexpectly: strange firewall events in log before.

VM shutting down unexpectly: strange firewall events in log before.

(OP)
My VM is shutting down at least once a week.

I don't understand what is going on.

These show up in the logs in the vsphere. It's like somehow the firewall is changing and then the vm shuts down... then I remote in and power it back on then it stays up for another week. Any ideas would be welcomed!
Thanks

(rest of log snipped)

It appears as if the host is rebooting, and the VMs are not set to automatically power up.  I'd suggest figuring out what is causing the host to restart.
