I doubt that this issue is specific to FoxWeb running in a VM. Under normal circumstances, I would have guessed that there is a permissions problem, but given the intermittent nature this does not seem to be the case.
Could it be a networking issue? What is the nature of the "intermittency"? Is it really random from request to request, or do you get periods during which file access consistently fails, followed by times when it works fine?
Are there any differences between the periods when things are working and when they are not, such as the FoxWeb operational mode (system service/regular application)?

We did a P2V conversion of our FoxWeb server and it is now running as a VM. For the most part it works well but we have an issue related to connecting to our file server which we did not have when FoxWeb (and IIS) were running on a physical box.
In the error log, we will see error 1, which is ...does not exist.
The statement causing the error is a USE statement and the DBF that it is attempting to USE does exist.
It is an intermittent problem so we are find it hard to diagnose.
Do you have any information about problems with running FoxWeb on a VM?
We are running:
VFP 7 SP 1
Win Server 2003 SP 2
100 MB Buffer Mem. Size
Thank you for your help
