I have a windows 2003 server running under vmware esx.
For weird reasons, outside of our control, sometimes the guest tcp/ip stack stops working. So, for example, remote desktop connections don't work.
My goal is trobleshooting this network ( and other ) guest errors.
I can develop and put inside the guest some scripts, to monitor and detect tcp/ip and other application specific faults.
Can I run some console tool, to report a fault from the guest to the hypervisor ?
This tool has to work without network's apis, due to the failures we want to troubleshoot. I think it is possible : the supervisor works, I use it while the guest tcp/ip stack was faulty.
