Issue 2 – KB974909
Consider the following scenario:
- You run a virtual machine (VM) on the computer.
- You use a network adapter on the VM to access a network.
- You establish many concurrent network connections. Or, there is heavy outgoing network traffic.
- In this scenario, the network connection on the VM may be lost. Additionally, the network adapter is disabled.
- Note: You have to restart the VM to recover from this issue.
