Virtual SBS2011 very slow due to lack of resources
Honored experts and fellow geeks.
I NEED YOUR HELP ASAP!!!!
I have a customer with a two year old Dell PowerEdge Server.
This server runs a full Server2008R2 with the hyper V role.
On top of this there is a Small Business Server 2011 running virtual.
This scenario has been working as a dream for the past two years.
For about a week ago, the customer started complaining that the SBS became very slow to unresponsive.
The customer haldled this by restarting the server twice a day.
If I take a closer look at the server I see that it consumes 90% CPU and that the available memory is 0 !!
However I cant see what seems to be the problem!
Event log shows no critical events for 24 hours.
Only suspecious thing is that under SERVICES I see that SQLSERVER is consuming about 10 gigs of memory but I guess this could be just normal behavior.
I REALLY WOULD APPRECIATE EVERY HINT!! :-)
I have some bonus info:
Backup Exec 2012 is installed on the host and uses an agent to access the SBS.
Antivirus is Trend Micro Worry Free Business Protection.
