I have a HP DL320 G6 | Xeon E5630 | 96GB RAM | [4] 1TB HDDs, RAID 5 - all | Windows Server 2022 Datacenter. I am running two VMs on it for various services like Unifi, FM audit, Bell software, etc. Both VMs are very sluggish. Currently, I have shut one down, moved VM2 from 2 CPUs to 3, and assigned 24GB RAM. Doesn't make any difference, still incredibly sluggish. Doesn't matter if I'm using on the host or over remote desktop on another PC. I've repurposed old hardware like this before without issues. Looking at the CPU usage of the host, you'd think everything would be OK. Is there something I'm missing on configuration? Is there something that needs to be disabled in 2022? Or should I scrap this server and get a new one? Thank you for your input.
