Windows 2008 R2 Network Problem under heavy loads
I was facing this problem during the last month till I found this
update, My testing server was holding around 12 VMs ( AD, Exchange
2010, SCOM, SCCM, TMG, etc... ) and we were facing a network problem,
In heavy network loads some of the VMs got a disconnected NIC.
I found that TMG's team is facing the same problem...
If you've deployed your ISA Server, Microsoft IAG, Forefront TMG or
Forefront UAG on Hyper-V R2 and noticed that a connection between the
guest and the virtual switch starts "acting odd", performs poorly or
becomes disconnected entirely, you may want to apply this update:
Consider the following scenario:
- You install the Hyper-V role on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
- You run a virtual machine on the computer.
- You use a network adapter on the virtual machine to access a network.
- You establish many concurrent network connections, or there is heavy outgoing network traffic.
In this scenario, the network connection on the virtual machine may be lost. Additionally, the network adapter is disabled.
Note You have to restart the virtual machine to recover from this issue.
You have to install this hotfix for this problem, Now everything is fine
