2003 Server HyperV Client 100% CPU
Our SIMS server is visualised (p2v) running on 2008 R2 HyperV Host Server. The host server has 32Gb RAM and dual processors with 16 cores available.
The SIMS Server runs at 100% CPU most of the time which makes SIMS.net really sloooow. I've checked in the task manager and it is the SQL process (sqlservr.exe) that is the cause. Yet when I look at the host task manager it never goes over 2-3% cpu on any core. So the host processing power is not being passed to the guest.
The guest already has the max 4 logical processors and being 2003 x86 std I can't give it more than 4Gb RAM.
I've got to move SIMS over to a new 2008 x64 R2 server in the summer (which I hope would have better performance, being optimised for virtualization).
Is there anything I can do to speed up this 2003 virtual machine in the meantime?
