    Default Zimbra is slow on VMWare server 2

    Hi,

    I have installed Zimbra on VMWare server 2. It just seems randomly slow down.

    - My zimbra version is "Release 5.0.6_GA_2313.UBUNTU6_64 UBUNTU6_64 NETWORK edition";
    - OS is Ubuntu 6.06 LTS;
    - VM configuration, 2CPU, 4G Memory,

    Have no vm tools installed at the moment? If I do want to improve performance, what should I start with?

    Charlie

    hello charlie,
    I would recommend installing zimbra on other than vmware 'cause I have similar problems and frustating experiences installing zimbra on vmware.installing zimbra on vmware tends to slow down the entire server responses unless your server is a very powerful one,also you need to take into consideration the ram,processor etc..I have decided to install zimbra from a scratch on a fresh ubuntu server other than vm...
    regards tashi

    Zimbra works flawlessly on VMware Server 2 (as long as your hardware is good enough).

    How much RAM and CPU and disks do you have on your host ?

    However, there's a huge problem CPU usage problem with VMware Server 2.

    Is the Zimbra VM the only one running on the server ?
    How many users do you have ?

    You should try with only 1 vCPU and install the VMware Tools.
