I currently have a setup that includes 4 server 2003 32bit OS's which are setup as VM's using Hyper V on a Server 2008 platform. The reason for the Server 2003 32bit OS's is to accommodate a 32bit XP/2003 application.
If running on a physical Server 2003 32bit box then speed is not a problem, even though the box in question has less ram and less spec processors.
As soon as it starts running on the VM's hosted by Hyper V speed is ok but has frequent moments where things will just lock up completely, I wanted to setup the 4 separate Terminal Servers as it allows me to allocate 4 GB of ram per VM with it being a 32Bit OS limits me, in theory this should increase my speed but has failed to do so.
TS Setup: 2 x Intel Quad Core 2.8 Processors, 24GB Ram, Server 2008 64bit
Guest OS's: 4 x Server 2003 32bit, 4gb ram each
Is there issues with the fact the host OS is 64bit and the guest OS's are 32 bit??
Tearing my hair out with this!!!
