It sounds like a corrupt /etc/passwd file - contact your datacenter and have them restore a backup of it if that is the problem.

There should be several in /etc/passwd.*

When your /etc/passwd file corrupts, the service users cannot be read, that causes the crash etc of services. My best guess thus far anyway ;)
