RDP to guest vm’s running Windows Server 2022 are freezing a few seconds after connecting. Running latest VirtIO drivers 1.1.7. After rebooting the guest, RDP seems to work ok for an hour or so before freezing again. Guest memory utilization 48%, CPU 3-5% so no issue there.

That is more a Windows/network/firewall issue then Nutanix. Are the rest of the machines working correctly?

Yes, RDP freezing does not occur on 2019 and earlier server VM’s. Console session is fine. We have 2x 2022 VM’s both experiencing the same behavior.

We’re experiencing the same issue. Virtio 1.1.7, newer 2022 boxes, no other servers exhibiting those symptoms.

Do you have any anti-virus, security or application white Iisting tool install on the vm which is creating such issue.


Please do check how the data read /write how much data read/write is from ssd. You can check this from prim storage matrix of the affected Ted vm


Latest virtio drivers added support for Server 2022.  Maybe try those?
