Hi Everyone. Have a Windows Server 2008R2 VM running on ESXI 4.0. For about 1 year everything was running fine, but there was a string of power outages that seem to have caused issues with the VM.
It sits on a 1TB drive with the ESXI host. I have a firewall VM sitting on a second drive and that doesn't crash. When the server crashes you cannot communicate with it at all. Not even a ping.
The problem I am having is that because the server must be stopped and restarted (or may even need to hard reboot) it creates no logs as to why it crashed. Diagnostics of the drive show that everything is fine.
I am looking for recommendations on whether I should clone the drive or if anyone has experienced this before?
