We have a 2012 server.
Since a fe wdays we have a problem that everyday around twelve the system can't be reached. LAter on it can.

I saw that on that time VSS dit his thing. I changed the time to 06.00 and 19.00 and today there was no problem. So it seems to have to do with VSS. There were also errors in the event viewer concerning VSS.

I investigated further and saw that the VM host and the VM both had VSS enabled and even on the same time.

Can anyone tell me if this could be the problem ?
I changed the settings, but like to know more about it.

Should anyone do both VSS on VM host and VM ?

Like to hear from you.
