Need some solution to find the Windows server in VMware plateform going in to hung state RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have been looking for a way to find the server hung state and find the cause of it.

    Really windows is the worst place to troubleshoot. I am finding ultimate difficulties every time when the user comes up with hung issues especially on VM servers.

    We are using VMware 5.5 with Vcenter plateform for our servers windows server 2012 or 2008.

    Can this hung stage can be found from VMware level.

    Please help me. I am desperate.

    thanks in advance,

  • Hi,

    For a Windows Server, you will need to check the Server Manager (at the screen bottom) or the Event Viewer log (specially Application and System), both can give you sufficient information regarding everything that happens that is inked to the server but you need to know the date and time to get to the right information.

    Not sure if this will help but thats all I can think of right now.
