Has anyone run into problems running Quickbooks on a 2008R2 virtual machine inside a 2012R2 host?
CPA firm has hundreds of QB's files and problem appears to be with the QB DB Manager Enterprise Edition '14, performance has been terrible.  Keeps pegging the CPU and the "QBMGRN.exe" seems to be the culprit.  Tried contacting Intuit, but they seemed dumbfounded with the whole virtualization environment.  Waiting on a call back.

Thanks.

I have it on a non-VM; QBE always has issues of one sort or another. I usually end up uninstalling it and reinstalling, making sure it has the latest updates; run the QB network analyzer; run the database maintenance tools and usually one of those things points to a problem. I do not like QB as its products always have either issues or errors in the event logs so it is a never ending job but my client wants it working so I keep trying to keep it stable.
