VMWare "The CPU has been disabled by the guest OS. Power off or reset the virtual machine"

I own a hosting business and we are currently working on supporting hosting VPSs. I have setup proxmox and randomly VMWare gives me this message every few hours

This happened at night so when I saw this I did the following
We have an uptime tracker, so when the VM shut off the uptime tracker detected it and told me what time it went off
I went to the linux syslogs and I went to the time which the vm shut down
In the linux syslogs I found this


Then the log just ends there until the time when I turn on the vm again

Anyone know what is causing this or how to fix?
seems the access to the screenshots is restricted? at least i do not see them (403 forbidden)
These are the screenshots
