    VM hangs on third guest OS

    slona Lurker

      I am new to VMWare and have a setup with 2 VM running. I created a third VM and installed Windows XP 32 bit. But I am not able to run VM 2 (Windows Server 2008) and VM 3 (Windows XP) together.


      I can keep VM 1 and VM 2 or VM 1 and VM 3 running, but if I start all 3 VMs the whole Host server hangs. I can individually run VMs or a combination of Linux and Windows. But when I start both windows it hangs.


      Is there a way I can debug what is wrong with the setup? Any help appreciated.
