    VM Guest random restart during boot

    CiscoKid Hot Shot


      We have recently performed P2Vs of HP Proliant systems into our Virtual Infrastructure and have observed a strange but consistent behavior and don't know if the Guests or the Hosts are to blame.  In a nutshell, when the VM Guests are booted/rebooted they would go through the VMware POST and then the Windows 2003 Logo boot screen with the grey horizontal scroll for about 3-4 times then the screen in the console window would go black.  We would close the console window and open a new one only to observe that the VM Guest rebooted again and would repeat with the VMware POST and the Windows 2003 Logo boot screen but this time it would startup without incident.  Anyone else experience this...even further, did those that observe this behavior resolve it?  Thanks in advance.
