Hi Guys,

I need to help w.r.t VMTools running on a Domain Controller to a point that the VM freezes.
The work around is to stop and disable the VMTools or stop &  set the  VMTools service to "manual".
The freeze happens not everyday, but the time stamp when it freezes is always in the morning between 10:00 - 10:30AM.

Thank you

What could be the probable cause?
