Overview

This article shows you how to increase RAM memory reservations in VMware vSphere. You must reserve all of the memory that is allocated to LEM in vSphere.

EXAMPLE:

If you have 32GB RAM allocated to LEM you MUST have 32GB reserved in the vSphere hypervisor.

Environment

  • All versions of LEM
  • VMware vSphere 5

Steps


1. Power off the VM from LEM before configuring the memory settings.
     Using PuTTy or vSphere Console:
     Open cmc > enter "appliance" > enter "shutdown"
          Note:  Wait until the LEM has shutdown.

Continue with the procedure below:

  1. In the vSphere Client, right-click the LEM virtual machine from the inventory and select Edit Settings.
  2. In the Virtual Machine Properties window, select the Resources tab and select Memory.
  3. In the Resource Allocation panel, select the Reserve all guest memory (All locked) check box.
  4. Click OK.


The LEM virtual machine's memory is now fully reserved.
