I have a Windows Server 2003 Standard (64 bit) server runing VMWare Server, There are 3 virtual servers installed. The host has 2 physical network cards.
All 3 servers have a network linked to one of the network cards that work fine.
2 of the servers are linked to the second network card. One of them has no problem, the other one stops reponding every few days. The one that works fine is Server 2003 Standard (32bit), the one that stops reponding is Server 2003 Standard (64 bit), both are linked to the same phyical card, the 32 bit(Working) one shows the network card up as VMware Accelerated ABM PCNet adapter, while the 64bit server shows up as Intel(R) PRO/1000MT Network connection.
VMWare tools is installed on all the virtual servers.
The first network card that works correctly in all 3 machines shows up the same as the one that stops responding (see above)
It seems to stop responding at night arround the time that a batch file copies a lot of data from the 64 bit OS to the 32 bit OS.
Any suggestions on what the problem might be, any other data you would like posted that might be relevant?
Thanks in advance for you help.
