No Port Binding / Startup on a virtualized Microsoft Server 2008 with VMWare

Hi everyone,

we can't get Elasticsearch (1.3.4 at the moment) to start up on an MS
Server 2008 RC2 that is virtualized by VMWare. It was installed by using
the service.bat file.
In the elasticsearch.log in debug mode we don't see the message were it
prints wich ports it has bound to.

After startup we made a threaddump that suggests Elasticsearch is hanging
in a native method at
org.hyperic.sigar.Sigar.getFileSystemListNative(Native Method), see:

We use the HotSpot JVM 1.8.0_20-b26, the configuration is all-default.

Does anyone haven an idea where to start looking? Same setup starts up on
other Windows machines I could find here.

best regards,
