Windows 2016 slow on ESXi 6.5

By |januari 29th, 2018|Categories: VMware|Tags: |

After some Windows 2016 server deployments on ESXi 6.5 customers started to notice slow server responses. I came across the following VMware article. https://recommender.vmware.com/solution/SOL-13898?src=vmw_so_vex_mrous_1194 So after checking the build numbers on the ESXi server it turned out i was on build 5146846. I suggest you upgrade to  ESXi 6.5 Update 1, build number should be 5969303 or higher If you are unable to upgrade ESXi then use the registery settings in this VMware article. hope this helps anyone.
