    Windows Server 2019 on ESXi 6.5 U2 - black screens

    dfosbenner Novice

      I have a few Windows Server 2019 VMs.  When connected to the VMs using Remote Desktop, the screen will go black after a period of inactivity, and most times will not come back.  A disconnect and reconnect of Remote Desktop is needed to see the screen again.

       

      ESXI is patched to 11925212.  VM version 13.  VM Tools version 10341.

       

      I'm wondering if anyone else has experience this or is aware of it?  Are there any workarounds?  I haven't figured out a way to make the screen appear again, but sometimes it does come back.  In the VM, the display adapter is VMware SVGA 3D.
