As an Application Support group, we are working with our IS folks to transition from a Windows NT4/Citrix environment (that our world wide users use to access the application which uses an Oracle database)to a Windows 2003/Virtual Server/Citrix environment. The Win2003/Virtual machine environment runs great (we haven't gotten beyond a one user test) but with Cirtix in the mix it slows to a crawl. IS is stumped.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Well I would have to assume you are over Taxing the Threads of the Processor. If I was setting this up I would not have a Virtual Machine Handling Virtual Machines for Citrix. I would build out the Server with Mulitple Processors and lots of Ram. Thus Letting all of the Server Handle the Multiple Citrix Virtual Sessions.

    I should have noted that this configuration (Citrix on a Virtual machine) was also tested in a Win2000 environment and did not exhibit the performance problem we see with Win2003. The justification for this configuration is the ease of adding additional Virtual Citrix servers as our user base continues to grow both in numbers and duration of use. From a maintenance viewpoint this is a "must have" configuration given it's demonstrated viability in the Win2000 environment. We just need to deploy it with Win2003 and can't determine what the Citirx is doing there that's not a problem with Win2000.
