Nothing is impossible, but VMWare has, as far as I'm aware, a good
reputation for making sure that a session has no idea it is not actually
running on real hardware.

Is that reports or report?

Not that I'm denying even a single report. My problem isn't vmware, it is
a reliable stress testing application that can actually simulate
something like a live environment. My limited tests are so limited that
they are nothing more than a smoke test. On their own they neither
confirm nor deny a problem. Although, if a simple test could confirm the
problem it would be a damn sight easier to find a solution.
