Hello.  I have a super nice 4 core, 12G HP DL380 server with VMWare 3.51 loaded on it.  I have 3 virtual machines.  Two were cloned and working fine, the one I'm having issues with is a new Server 2008 build.  The box is not tasked acording to the VM tools.  When I click on something I have to wait a full 45 seconds or more before it jumps.  Where do I look to improve performance?

look at the preformances of your ESX
look at the performance monitor in windows on your VM
check event log of w2008 for errors

Turned out to be a double solution.  The VM was using a different network card.  I changed the network card and that took care of half the problem.  Pings from the VM to server 1 were 1MS constant.  Pings from server 1 to VM were between 19-22MS constant.  Turned out to be Symantecs Network Threat Protection.  When NTP was disabled the VM was quick like it is supposed to be.
