VMware Windows VM keeps crashing
Posted on 2014-11-30
we have 1 x Windows SBS 2011 server VM running on dedicated physical server. Hardware is quite new (HP ML350 G8, Single processor)
Version: VMware ESXi 5.5.0
Problem: VM (SBS 2011) keeps crashing with just a black screen (when checked on VM console on vSphere client), it happens regularly and some day 2-3 times. To fix the problem need to power off the VM and restart and it works fine. thought it was related to memory so added more memory VM has 28GB memory now.
Not sure if it required ESXi update?
Could you please suggest a solution for this issue.
when it is crashed with black screen SBS 2011 local IP still replies the ping request.
