  • Problem in allocating memory to virtual machine

    Good evening everyone,
    First I apologize for my English only speak Spanish and use a software translator.

    I have a server in debian with 2 virtual machines working, broke the hard
    disk and reinstall the operating system and of the vmware-server
    version 1.6, one of the virtual machines can not set the allowance of
    memory, 2 GB entered into the console and when it started the virtual
    machine continues with 1 GB, however in the second virtual machine I do
    not have any problem. Can anyone help me solve this problem?
    I can not find any error or
    message in my logs that can tell me that I can not change the
    configuration of the primary virtual machine.

    Thank you very much at all

    How much memory does the host server have installed?

      Good evening and thank you for your interest in my problem

      Now the server has 4 GB of RAM, 3 servers working in Debian.
      The first server works with 900 MB and the second server works with 500 MB, in the second server I have no problem to expand its memory to 1 or 1.5 GB.

      In the first server to work with 900 MB memory I extensive in the console-to-1, 1,5 or 2 GB and it started when the server continues with the 900 MB.

      I wanted to put this server to work with 2 GB of RAM, leaving the second server with 500 MB
      Again, thank you very much for your interest and support.

        Does VMware Server (I assume you mean version 1.0.6) allow you to set 2GB RAM without error? Can you set 2GB RAM for the VM, exit the VM configuration, go back in and see 2GB RAM is configured or did it change back to 1GB RAM before powering on the VM?

        Have you looked at the logs inside the directory where the VM lives?

          The logs do not say anything,
          Yes vmware version 1.0.6
          I launch the second virtual machine with 2 GB and starts well,

          And at first, appear on the console if the 2 GB of RAM configuration of the server, but when he returns to boot back to 900 MB,

          Ufff no longer do that does not have much logic, I've thought of something to leave when the virtual machine is launched, but nothing found

            Good evening everyone,
            After downloading the virtual machine to my pc I realized that the problem may be in error in the file is stored NOMBRE.VMX settings from the virtual machine, this file is gone and will not be as has been .

            Now my question is logical,
            How do you generate that file again in the virtual machine?
            One can advise me on this

            Thank you

              To "re-create" the .vmx file, simply create a new Virtual Machine and add the existing .vmdk disk files.
