    Problem with Windows Update on some VM

    TonyJK Expert



      We are running vSphere 6.0.  We find that for a number of VMs running Windows Server 2012R2.


      It is pretty slow to download Windows Update and the update process takes a long time.


      Also, when we click "Reboot Server", the Windows Server seems to lose Network Connectivity but it takes a long time before it enters "Reboot" stage.  Not to mention, it takes a long time for preparing Windows Update.


      There is sufficient vCPU / RAM and VMDK file space.


      Would it be due to the HDD is thin provisioning  (Others with Thin Provisioning are performing good) ?  Is there any clue from VMware point of view ?
