    Server 2 RC1 Random Freezing and high write times

    jcampo2 Lurker

       

      Hi Everyone,

       

       

      After installing RC1 I am experiencing periodic freezing of both the guest and host machines. The freezing last a couple of minutes and then "normal" operation resumes. No errors in event log, VMware logs show a jump in write times. No other changes where made on the box besides the upgrade from beta 2 to rc1. 

       

       

       

       

       

      No errors  in event logs, only VMware related symptom is a jump in theWRITE times on the host. These vales normally operate in the 1 -3 seconds range during freezing they jump upto 14 seconds. The server is a dell 1950 RAID 1 running Windows 2003. Only 4 guests running on the machine.

       

       

      Anyone experience anything similar? Possible VMware configuration change causing it?

       

       

       

       

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
