    Guest network connectivity lost during terminal services logon to host

    stedlar Lurker



      I have several dell servers running VMware server 2.0.2 on Windows server 2008 R2


      On each of these servers I have three or four guests, some guests are running windows server 2003 and others running windows server 2008.


      We remote administer the Dell physical host servers using terminal services.


      Frequently when we log into the host servers we get the following issue


      1 – The terminal server session will wait for up to 60 seconds with the message “Please wait for the user profile service”


      2 – While the terminal server session to the host has the message, all network connectivity to the guest machines on the host is lost.


      3 – When the terminal server session finally logs on to the hosts, network connectivity to the guests resumes.


      There are no events or errors in the logs to indicate where the problem may lay.


      We have many physical servers that reside in the same domain, both server 2003 and server 2008, but none of them ever experience any issues with terminal services. Only VMware host servers behave this way, and all of them behave the same.


      Any suggestions please?
