Intermittent Hyper-V Guest Networking issue

I'm having issue tracking down a hyper v issue/RDS issue. I have

Hyper V 2008 R2 Server running from Dell T-610. Single NIC is wired to gigabit switch, both VM access this through an external network i created.

VM 1 SBS 2011
SM 2 2008 R2 RDS

RDS is setup and working, licenced. The issue is intermittently when I try and open a RDP connection from the SBS 2011 VM the connection fails, if I immeditaly try to telnet to RDS 3389 that also fails. After a few minutes i try again and both the RDS is accepted and the telnet test also connect. Not sure where to start with this. Is this an RDS issue or flakey networking from the Hyper-V server

I've had that too, I have 16 NICs in my hosts configured in teams of 4. I have 2008R2 with SP1, install the lastest patches from Microsoft and try it again
It sorted my problem
