1.6ghz Quad core Intel Xeon
8 gig RAM
2 x 750gig SATAII mirrored
Windows Server 2008
IIS is the only Role enabled.
Im not using Hyper V because it is pre release and one requirement is that the guest OS can be moved to another PC without hyper v support. So that means Virtual Server is option.
SBS 2003 Standard
I have the max 3712gig RAM assigned to the VS
50gig Fixed size VHD system partition
This drive is on a virtual scsi id 0
The performance of the Guest OS is slower on this Server 2008 Host with better hardware than I have experienced using 2003 Server standard with less RAM and less specs in hardware.
Any ideas to speed things up in the guest?
The host OS flys. Its really fast. The guest is almost unusable.
I have enabled Intel Virtualization support in the Bios of the Host but that made no change.
