Forum,
I installed GNS3 in a virtual machine, running a Windows 2008 server. I'm using VMWare Player. Everything was going well but, when I ran the IDLE PC Calculation, it never ends...for me it freezes.

Has anybody experienced something similar? At this point I can know if the issue is due to W2008 Server, VMWare...or what.

I would be deeply grateful if anybody could give me some advise.

Sincerely

Ariel

My first guess would be the image - do you have another image you can try with?

And does the image work at all without an idle-pc? You don't NEED an idle-pc to get your router running, so save your settings without an idle-pc set, and make sure you can get to the console and configure the router, to verify the image is OK. If you can get this far... I'm out of ideas. In fact, you should have your console opened and at the Router> (or R1#) prompt BEFORE you try to find the idle-pc anyway.

BTW - I'm assuming your title was meant to be "IDLE PC freezes on VMWARE guest" But then the guest is the host for the router ARRGH too confusing!
