Optimizing VM performance..

We are currently running Virtual PC 2007 on one of our slower boxes for our BES server. Also, our EMC Email Xaminer box is running on VMware. I'm looking to get the optimal performance out of both of these VM's. Any help? ideas?etc?

Thanks! icon_thumright.gif

    lol yes, aside from this. The one running VMware is a brand new box. It's just a little choppy.

    Also what would make a VMware machine not respond to Remote Desktop when it once was? Remote Desktop is checked... icon_mad.gif

    Firewall. What're your network settings? NAT would be problematic.

    Separate disks for VMs help performance a lot as well.

    No firewall enabled. It's in the OU for all our servers = no firewall.
