We have a Xen server running 3 virtual servers. One is a domain controller, a SQL server and a file server. All running Server 2008 R2 Enterprise.
We went to install Storage craft on the SQL server and we rebooted it and it took for ever to come up. It wouldn't come up so we rebooted it from the Xen Center. It takes almost 20 minutes for it to boot into windows and when it finally gets to a desktop it will be just the desktop background but no desktop.
We are unable to ping this server once its booted up. We should be able to ping it when its starting to come up but nothing.
One engineer thinks he saw that TCPv6 was unchecked in network properties. We can only access this server from the Xen Center on the domain controller.
Would this be the cause? We are trying to reboot it and check. Its just really slow. Remember this is a virtual server.
