Vmware – possible data corruption in virtual machine…

I came across this article on the Vmware support forums, and even though I haven’t encountered the error myself I though i’d post it anyways so as many people get this information.


On a Windows 2012 virtual machine using the default e1000e network adapter and running on an ESXi 5.0 or 5.1 host, you experience these symptoms:

  • Data corruption may occur when copying data over the network.
  • Data corruption may occur after a network file copy event.


The root cause of this issue is currently under investigation.

Please read this KB from Vmware on how to avoid this issue in case you are running ESXi 5.0 or 5.1 and have WIndows 2012 vm’s.
