Esxi 6.7 with Win10 and RadioDJ is crashing
« on: November 19, 2020, 03:03:13 PM »
Hi everybody,

I have an Intel Xeon server with 32GB Ram and a few VMs running very fine. Four of them are running Win10 x64 with RadioDJ 2.0.6 without problems. After one or two days the server is just crashing.
This is happening only if i start one of this VMs.

Somebody having the same problem?

Best regards!

Which Virtualization software are you using?

When I ran Virtual Machines with VMware I had 2GB assigned per instance. Which for RadioDJ should be plenty.

With 32GB on board you shouldn't be having any issues have you searched Google for tips on running said Virtual machine?

When you say the server is crashing, is it the RadioDJ vm instance that is crashing or the ESXi server that is crashing?

If just the VM is crashing and not the esxi check to make sure the vmtools are installed and the memory allocation is correct.

If the esxi server is crashing due to the one VM then check if the Intel CPU is on the 6.7 compatibility list.  If it is, do a 6.7 update to the latest releases and see.
