Hi All, Thank you very much for the feedback. Unfortunately I received little further information on what happened other than it was a "user initiated disk wipe". No idea who what or why, but I think @MosheKatz found the closest match

Hi @Doc,Thanks for the feedback, but it isn't. This is an in-guest operation, un-maps etc should be non-destructive, and wont be reported through a console window in that manner

@MosheKatz Looks like a contender, very similar looking

@HopelessN00b Seemed to be unresponsive, although not much time was spent on it as a load of other VMs were reporting no os found. Looks like it was point in time, and has since finished.

@BigHomie It is a windows only environment

@MichelZ Yes, everything points to an in-guest operation, be it RDP, remote execution. I have most visibility of the VMware layer, currently.

@JamesRyan Thanks, I believe mounting an iso would show as a VM re-configuration in the events log, and no such events are present. I'll check now however (just checked, mounting an iso shows as "reconfigure virtual machine" in tasks

@DAN no PXE is picked up when VM restarts - hence the "no os found" unless it is a very targeted pxe setup. Also, NFS running out of storage /MAY/ be caused by a full disk write of this tool
