For my convenience I converted the player/workstation image to an ESXi image.
Everything works fine with one exception: from time to time I find theimage frozen and ESXi logs reports that the OS halted the CPU.
According to VMWare this is not a problem with ESXi, but with the OS doing it as reported here: https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=10101...
Did it happen to someone else too? There it is a fix I can try?
