This issue is caused by a known issue in the VMware VDDK.

"VDDK crashes after disk open call and session login attempt.

When trying to retrieve the NFC ticket for a disk after VixDiskLib_OpenEx, VDDK crashes intermittently (due to a null pointer read in gvmomi) when it attempts a session login to vCenter Server. The fix will appear in a future release."
