SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the following specification for my development environment;

Host Machine:-

  1. Windows 7 professional.
  2. Core i7 (8 processes).
  3. VM workstation.
  4. 32 GB RAM.
  5. 700 GB hard disk.

On the VM:-

  1. Windows server 2008 r2.
  2. SQL server 2008 r2.
  3. SharePoint server 2013.
  4. Visual studio 2012.
  5. Team foundation server 2012.
  6. 4 processes.
  7. 24 GB RAM
  8. 80 GB Hard disk.

But when I first install the VM it was fine and fast, but after working on SharePoint (creating new Apps, web applications, etc.) it become very slow, for example when I try to create new web application, I was not able to change the field’s values as the dialog become unresponsive. BUT THE only thing I did on my virtual machine is as follow:-

  1. I first install the VM using the administrator account using the default domain for my machine.
  2. And now I have create a new user which is login to our company domain and I am access the same VM create by the admin on the old domain, so might this cause the performance issue?

Thanks in advance for any help. BR
