    Guests being powered off in Workstation Pro 15.1

      This is a new one for me. I've never seen behavior like this. Anyone else?


      Workstation Pro 15; VMs are being powered off (not Shutdown) every few hours (completely random, could be 2 hours, could be 8). Host is stable and not resetting, Workstation console itself does not close, but all VMs are being powered off simultaneously. Event viewer in the guest OS shows that the previous system shutdown was unexpected so this was not a graceful shutdown. Guests are running combination of Windows Server 2016, 2019, and Windows 10 1809 & 1903. All VMs are powered off at the same time. VMs were copied from another machine and the VMs do not behave this way on that device.


      The new host is an Intel NUC with and i7 processor, 32 GB RAM, a 256 GB SSD for OS and a 1 TB NVMe drive for the VMs. It is running Windows Server 2019 (fully patched) with data deduplication enabled on the NVMe drive. I am running Workstation Pro 15.1.


      Any ideas?
