Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • A computer has a baseboard management controller display adapter that uses the RemoteFX cap driver.
  • The computer hosts virtual machines (VMs), and you use the Microsoft RemoteFX feature to improve the user experience in VMs.
  • When you try to start the RemoteFX-enabled VM, the VM does not start, and you receive the following error message:
    Microsoft Synthetic 3D Display Controller : Failed to Power on with Error 'Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.
In this scenario, some VMs that use the RemoteFX feature cannot start.

For example, you have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and that hosts 20 VMs. The VMs use the RemoteFX feature. However, about only 10 VMs that use the RemoteFX feature start at the same time.

Cause

This issue occurs because of an error when the graphics processing units (GPUs) that try to run RemoteFX are not accessed by the server.

Note Without this hotfix, this issue occurs randomly and might not appear after you restart the computer.

Resolution

The following hotfix has to be installed on the server and does not apply to the VMs.
