Hi,

I have a new server running with below configration. I build it for VM but the performance is very low. Even while installing a software like VMware workstation it takes 1 min to open a web browser window.

Configration :-

MB :- S5520HCR

Processor:- XEON E5620 X 2

RAM :- 24GB EEC registered

HDD :- SAS 2 TB as JBOD on ROCKET RAID 2640X4

Power :- 700 watt

 

Please help. Also Windows does not restart it shutdowns and goes to a black screen.I have to reset the system again to reboot.

 

Thanks

    Some additional information could help. What version of Windows Server ? Did you find any problems during the operating system installation ? Have you checked the event logs ? Have you verified that the appropriate drivers were installed for your hardware ?

    Did you find a solution ? It would be interesting to know what it was. I would suspect a hardware issue, and maybe would start by removimg/interchanging RAM modules to see if that makes any difference. Some hardware diagnostic tool could be very helpful in this case.
