Server 2008 locked for a few seconds

Postby josejdm » 8. Feb 2019, 12:39

Hello, I have a virtualized Windows 2008 server on virtualbox on Mac. The problem is that it gets stuck for a few seconds while I'm working on the virtual machine, something that did not happen to me when I had it on Linux with less resources. It stays locked for two or three seconds and works again. I tried to upload the RAM but it does the same to me. Do you know any solution?

We need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.
Do NOT reply with the "QUOTE" button, please use the "POST REPLY", at the bottom of the form.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
