VMWare reset takes 5-10 minutes before you can login

Hello all

I'm here to ask if any of you know why after a virtual machine is reset it takes 5-10 minutes before anyone can login through a thin client. I am able to almost instantly through the vSphere client.

I know there is some spikes in cpu/memory but is that the cause of why our users have to wait so long?

You are using different technologies to login, Thin Client is dependant upon the networking and Terminal Services to start on the server.

Using the VMware vSphere Client you are viewing the console of the server through the vSphere APIs.

e.g. you can see the server startup.

Check the eventlogs on the server.

Remember if you watched a physical server to startup at the console on the monitor, you would see it start, and you would probably be able to login, before the Terminal Services started-up and enabled to allow remote users to login.

Thanks guys,

Is there anyway to increase how early Terminal Services is started up on the machines?

It would be nice if they mentioned if there was a way to increase how fast terminal services started.
