Hello Titu

I got the following information for you.

In the vm host:
hpvmmgmt -P vmoracle -x dynamic_memory_control=1

In the vm guest:
hpvmmgmt -V -l ram
hpvmmgmt -x ram_target=28500M

Hope this helps

Re: Increase memory in VM guest !!

Hi,

I think the guest must be down to perform these operations:

hpvmmodify -P -r 16G

If the guest is using dynamic memory also use -x ram_dyn_max=8G -x ram_dyn_target_start=8G

regards,

Richard

Re: Increase memory in VM guest !!

I am a bit confused here because I want to increase physical memory.

I tried hpvmmodify command with -r option.

Hi,

Just run hpvmstatus -P . You will see all attributes for the VM, including dynamic memory ranges.

Re: Increase memory in VM guest !!

Can you post the output of hpvmstatus -P for the vm in question (from on your host)?
