We've run into a problem twice now with WS2008 guests running under Hyper-V where the guest machine seems to basically die after a reboot. The guest image does boot up, but never comes on the network and if I log into the console from the Hyper-V management tool I am not able run any apps. I can log into the machine, but if I try to run the event log viewer or any other admin tool the app simply never launches.
In the latest example, we have a gues running CRM - I applied a CRM update that required a rebot. The guest never came back on the network, so I logged into the host and see the guest running. I can log into the guest from the Hyper-V console, but shortly after logging the explorer shell becomes unresponsive. If I try launching Event Viewer while the shee is active it simply never starts.
This is the exact same behavior I saw in another machine a few weeks back.
Couple of notes: -The host is a WS2008 Std Ed machine 64 Bit -The guest images were both WS2008 Std Ed 64 bit machines also -There are no meaningful entries in the event log on the host -I have tried rebooting the host - no change in behavior
