VMware tools Reporting Incorrect usage.

Last Modified: 2013-12-05
We currently have a windows 2000 SP4 machine running on Vsphere version 4.0.0 which is reporting incorrect host cpu and host memory usage.

On the VSphere Client the host cpu is showing as using 1700-3000Mhz of processor usage and 1200MB of memory usage.

When you actually look at the server, it is sitting at around 1-2% of processor usage and only using around 6-700MB of memory.

Has anyone ever encountered this previously? If so what was the fix???
