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.
