SEP 12.1 RU2 on Windows Server 2012 VM Singnificantly Reduced Performance
I have a number of Server 2012 std VM instances installed on an ESX 5.1 host(1 Socket Intel Xeon E3-1220). I installed SEPM 12.1.2 (RU2) on a Server 2012 VM with 2GB RAM and 1 core 3.1Ghz. I deployed the SEP client to my Remote Desktop Server (4GB RAM and 2 Cores 3.1Ghz), Domain Controller (1Core 3.1Ghz and 1GB RAM) and then the SEPM server itself. The SEPM server became unresponsive and had to be cold reset. The Domain Controller and Remote Desktop server performance was significantly reduced although the resource monitor indicated that CPU and Memory were in decent shape. RAM was 70% on the DC and about 40% on the RDS. CPU on both machines were sub 15%. Which is higher than normal , but i think still okay. These Servers are all accessed through remote desktop on the local network. Firstly initiating the connections took much longer than normal , Applications crashed and were not responding on the RDS. Eventually the RDS server became unresponsive and had to be cold reset.
Am I missing something here ?
