I got an issue with CHR 6.37.5 (bugfix) with P1-Trial license running on VMware ESXi 5.1.0. After ~3 days CHR VM got stopped. I checked logs on ESXi node:

I powered up VM and it started like nothing happened. Log says nothing:A Guest OS initiated reset generates this event in the virtual machine logs:
To continue troubleshooting, contact the operating system vendor to determine why the guest operating system initiated the reset. If the operating system vendor suspects that the outage was caused by VMware Tools or the virtual hardware, contact VMware support.

- CHR 6.37.5 (bugfix)
- License: P1-Trial
- disk0: Extended to 1GB.
- disk1: 200GB for The Dude 6 server install.
- VMware ESXi 5.1.0
- One vNIC E1000 with static MAC.
- 2GB RAM.
1. Is it known issue? If so, how to fix it?
2. Based on ESXi logs CHR initiated the reset. Does it mean it just crashed? How to see/find/analyze crashdump, if it exists?
3. Is there any way to enable a fuature to generate a crashdump file in case if any failure in the future?
