Hello, I installed vmware Workstation 17 Pro in a Lenovo P15v Gen. 3 pc equipped with i7-12700H processor, 64Gb of DDR5 SO-DIMM RAM, 1 Tb SSD HD.
The operating system of the computer is Windows 11 Pro 64bit.
I created 3 virtual machines with windows 11 pro assigning them 16GB of RAM and 8 cores. Unfortunately, the machines are unusable due to their slowness and very often they get stuck having to restart them with a "restart guest".
I tried to combine processors and cores to make it look at least 8 but the result doesn't change, slow machine and commands received with very long responses.
What can I do ?
I have been having this same issue for a few weeks now. I downgraded to 16, from Workstation Pro 17 to see if that would fix the issue but it did not. I have this issue with any vm operating system (Rhel 7/8, Ubuntu 20/22, Win 10/11).
Same here. I have issues only with VM with Win11. The host is a ZBook Fury i9-11950H with 128GB of RAM and 4TB of SSD disk. After a bunch of minuter if I click on whatever window on VM, mouse pointer stops working and also if I click on Ctrl + Alt + Canc on VMWare menu nothing happens so the VM is completely freezed
This is a huge problem for meg too, and even though we've an organization with lots of VMWare licenses, it seems like VMWare doesn't care one bit about support to its paying customers.
I'm currently looking into alternatives to VMWare for my whole organization, as it's not possible to use a product whose quality seemingly gets worse for each update.
