Hello, We just set up a new Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bits on Vmware Vcenter 5.5
The server is installed for 7 users to connect to the ERP SAGE Ligne 100.
When we open a console session on the Vsphere Client, there is no problem
When we open a Terminal Server Session, everything is very slow; It's also freezing when new users connect to the server while others are already connected.
The server is 8gb Memory. The VMWARE Tools are up to date.

This Server replace a WS2003 with exactly the same environnement (SAGE Ligne 100, 7 Terminal Server Users, SQL Server);which has no problem

Tanks for help

You should be using vmxnet3 just like in the old environment.

Check your memory provisioning.  You may need to add more. 8 GB seems low for SQL, TS and even 7 users.

We run SAGE MAS 200 as a remote app, as opposed to a full TS; you might try that.

You would also need RDS CALs to ensure you are in licensing compliance with your EULA.

SQL use 500 Mb of memory with databases
7 users is the maximum, but the problem appear with only 1 user.
The licences per user are up to date
We don't use the remote app services; the user has is own desktop on the remote desktop server
The problem doesn't appear in console mode, but only in rdp mode.
