    Linux guest time too slow only with Core2 Quad server

    floeff Novice

      Hello,

       

      we've been planning our virtual machines on a Core2 Duo test server, and all worked fine. Upon migrating to a Core2 Quad server, the time in the Linux guests runs much too slow. Ping measuring is wrong (less time than actually), and the time goes by much too slow, we lose lots of seconds during a minute.

       

      Our system:

      Debian 4.0 or Ubuntu 7.04 server

      Debian 3.1 and Ubuntu 7.04 guests

      VMware tools installed

      Core2 Quad, 4 GB RAM

      64 bit system and 64 bit kernel

      Also tested 32 bit system with 32 and 64 bit kernel

      VMWare Server 1.0.3

       

      I think it's related to the Core2 Quad CPU. Anyone has an idea?

       

      Thanks!
