Windows Server 2008 and SQL 2008 running very slow
I just built a Windows Server 2008 64bit virtual machine (VMWare vSphere 4). When done building the machine I installed SEP 11.0.4202.75 on the machine. My DBA tried to install SQL 2008 on this machine. He said that the system ran unbearable slow. I watched as he tried to install SQL and the machine ground to a near halt. We uninstalled SEP and the machine ran noticeablely faster. Any ideas as to why this is occuring and how to fix it?
