    Re: Vmware servers

    machine specs please.

    how much RAM do you have under the hood?

    what are these virtuals doing?

    are people trying to connect to multiple VMs at the same time?

    what is the network interface on the host system looking like? is it maxed?

    do some perfmon-ing and let us know what it looks like during one of these episodes when you cannot connect.

    do you get the same response with VNC? i use VNC to manage my linux virtuals, since RDP isnt viable, so maybe you could install VNC on one of the problem virtuals and try to connect whilst the problem is occurring, to rule out windows problems...

    what is the host OS? what version of VM?

    info, info, info....
    its easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

      Thanks for your interest.I answered your question
      1.That Host machine is having the 32 gb of Ram.And all guest machines are having 2 gb of Ram.
      2.All these guset machineds are acting as a server.
      3.Yes.Each guest machines are accessed different group peoples.Min 15 peoples per group.
      4.No it seems like normal in host macchine.But it is difficult to fing that Virtual machines during hanging state.
