Server 2008 File server limits

We have a windows 2008 file server. Lately we've been having problems with copying large files. If a user copies a large file to the file server it seems to use all of the system resources and doesn't allow anyone else to interact with the server until the copy is finished. This only happens with files that are large 500mb+. It locks the server down so completely that you can't even ping it.


Why would this be happening?

Oh, I suppose that I should mention that this server is running on a VMware ESXi host with 3 other VM on it. The other 3 VMs are not effected when the file server locks up.

i think your system fully utillized your CPU usage... try to upgrade you system. go to system manager to see the cpu utilization.

it does max it out sometimes. I don't know how. it's got 6 cores assigned to the file server. how can a file server use so much CPU?
