I've just set up a brand new Windows Server 2008 Std server on our esxServer and have found that when I RDP into it, I am experiencing really bad lag. It works fine from the Console, in fact I can take over the RDP session from the Console in the Infrastrusture client and the lag disappears.
I've installed the VMWare tools - and having done some research - the VMWare drivers don't seem to be coming through to the RDP session. For example, in the console - it uses a VMWare display adapter, but in the RDP it isn't.
I've tried RDPing from Vista and from Server 2003 and using 6.0 and 5.0 RDP programs - both are experiencing the same lag.
What am I missing?
