Centos 5.4 + vmware server 2.0.2

i have a centos 5.4 server with vmware server 2.0.2 installed on il. I am running two virtual machines on it: Microsoft windows xp pro sp3 and Centos 5.4 (both 32 bits).

I the last time, my virtual machines are stopped automaticaly, for example: i start both vm's in the evening, and in the morning they are powered down.
Often happens that vmware-mngm service is not accesible, i'm trying to acces it on browser but is not accesible. After i restart vmware-mngm service, it is working, but aflte a few operations with virtual machines, it gives me an error and stop responding again.

What should i do to solve this problem?

Thank you

After i log in vmware server panel i receive this error:


The server could not complete a request (HTTP 0 ).
The server encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from fulfilling the request. If this problem persists, please contact your system administrator.
after restarting vmware-mgmt i can log in. I have atached the log files

Downgrade glibc to fix
I was having this problem for a couple of days. Wasted many hours trying to figure out what the problem was.

Apparently, the glibc libraries that come with CentOS 5.4 cause the vmware-hostd process to crash. It's a known issue. You have to downgrade your glibc libraries to those from CentOS 5.3.

Here are the details of how I fixed the problem, along with a link to the bug as reported on a the site.
