Samba server CRASH

Some of our Samba servers sometimes completely crash with this message
on the console:

"VM killed process smbd".

If this occurs, we are obliged to power off our server and restart the
server. You
can no longer login nor can you enter the combination "Ctrl-alt-del".
We use Red Hat Linux 6.2 and Samba 2.0.7.

Does anybody have an idea what this message means and how to avoid these

situations? I have no idea what VM means...

If you have any information, feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

Werner Maes
