At my place of work we recently started using vmare esx server 3.5, all was ok until recently when most of the thin clients started slowing down. these are full machines created virtually on the server. Now what is the cause of the machines running slow? How do i install an antivirus on the server that will be effective on all the virtual machines and servers? thank you

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

As with any server, you should have a monitoring solution so you can pinpoint the issue causing the performance degradation. There are a bunch of products out there. A few vendors to look at would be Vizioncore’s vFoglight and eGInnovations.

As for your anti-virus question, you’ll need to install an anti-virus on each guest OS. You can’t run an anti-virus on the host only.
