CIM service needs to be restarted on esxi 5-1

CIM service needs to be restarted on esxi 5-1

We have several proliant servers of different models and generations runing esxi 5-1

On each server running esxi 5-1 the CIM stops reporting the hardwarware status of the server and we cannot open a properties page.

Restarting the CIM service will fix this but does not last more than a day or 2.

Is there a resolution for this or has anyone come up with a work around.

Thank you

Below is a sample from the syslo.log
