I have an IBM X3500 (standard spec server) with VMware ESXi hosting 2 VM's, Windows Server 2003 Small Business Server as the domain controller and Server 2008 Standard running as a terminal server.
The Guest OS's are freshly installed from about a week ago and we have migrated our production environment from an old HP server running SBS 03 to this ESXi host.
The SBS 03 VM on ESXi is crashing occasionally, usually under intense load with it asking a question as shown in the attached picture.
Looks to me like it's showing I'm out of space on one of the drives but I am not out of space that I can see.
We have 2x 73GB SAS drives in RAID 1 and 3x 146GB SAS drives in RAID 5.
On the 73GB mirror we have the following.
The ESXi hypervisor
a 50 GB Virtual HDD created to be C: for SBS 2003
On the 146GBx3 in RAID 5 array we have
a 150 GB Virtual HDD created to be D: for SBS 2003
a 50 GB Virtual HDD created to be C: for Server 2008
The 73GB Mirror has about 12GB free.
The RAID 5 array has about 70GB free.
I thought it might be running out of space on the mirror for the swapfile so i moved that to the RAID 5 array but it did not help.
The Virtual HDD's have very little data on them asides from their OS requirements.
How do I stop the SBS 03 VM crashing?
ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT!
