We have the following setup:
- A physical server running VMWare ESX 3.5
- There are two virtual machines on ESX: both running Windows Server 2003 SP2 (each have 3Gb of RAM and a physical CPU core)
I am now trying to establish a MS Virtual Server 2005 R2 on one of those virtualized servers to run development/test machines. However, I struck an issue - any virtual machine I try to run (on VS or VPC 2007) run extremely slowly. We are talking 10 minutes to get to the Windows loading screen for an XP virtual machine slow.
Has anyone tried doing this and if so then is there a magic trick that needs doing to make this happen?
