    Thanks for the reply Mahmoud, although the original video was not generated by our team, the setup where we had tried to regenerate this situation on had this hot fix installed, but still affected by the restart problem. I think we just got to wait to see another hotfix or SP before this problem resolved as our test server is fully updated.

    I had this before but the hotfix fixed it, can I know how many VM you are running and your server configs.

  4. Virtualized1970 says

    Its actually a testing server which I had created just to test the scenario. The server have 2 X Quad Core CPUs & 16 GB of RAM. The server start crashing usually when 18+ virtual machines run on it. Please note the load generated is using VMMark as I can’t generate much manually with my small testing environment. This server we had obtained for another implementation & I thought I will test the things on it for a while. I will only have the setup for another 48 hour, so if you have any suggestions by then I can test them out & update you back.
