i have just setup a 2003 server as the host
On a seperate hard drive i have setup a VM machine that is also 2003. Resources we have 3GB (2GB Guest 1GB Host) - Processor is a XEON 2.7ghz P4
The VM is running exchange 2003, file server, DHCP,DNS for a small business (4users) and the majority of the time we dont even use the file server aspect.
The slowness seems awful when RDP'ing directly into the VM machine.
We are using VM Workstation - i can only think that this was not designed for this type of thing.. Should i be learning/using ESXI? The VM resources should really be fine for what it needs but it seems extremely slow?
