I am running VMware server 2.0, host system is windows server 2003 r2 64 bit. VM is windows server 2008 r2 64bit, running sql server 2008 on the vm.
My problem is that when I run the task manager in the vm, the UI of the vm locks up, I am unable to do anything. I can’t click on anything, I can’t send ctl,alt,del. I have to crash the vm and reboot to regain control.
SQL seems to keep running fine, when the UI locks up. but I have no access to the user interface of the vm server. I cannot connect to a RDP session, it times out.
Seems that if I don’t run task manager, all is ok. But I need to be able to run task manager.
Has anyone else had this problem?
