  • Hardware Reserved Memory

    I have installed a Server 2012 VM onto ESXi5, much the same as I have done with numerous other VMs without issue.

    I have noticed that although I have assigned 12Gb to the VM, it is only using 2GB. Looking at Performance area for Memory, I can see that 10GB of the 12Gb is Hardware reserved.

    I checked the MSCONFIG/Boot setting for the Maximum Memory, and this is not selected.

    Puzzled by this, anyone know how I can unlock the reserved portion of memory as my VM is unusable at the moment?

    Ignore, after checking the server after the weekend it is magically using all of its available RAM with no hardware reserved memory. This appeared to fix itself.

      Haha - sometimes inexplicable settings are inexplicably resolved! Computers are weird
