Hello,

I have guest os in VMware. I originally had Windows 2003 SP2 Enterprise I had it with just 2 cpus and 4 GB of ram. I then sut this server down and then changed the following 4 CPu's and 8GB of ram.
I start up the server and I do not see the new settings appear when I right click my computer it still has the old settings.
I have checked the settings of the gurst os and it does the new settings.

Anything wrong that I might be doing?

How many CPU's does the host have?
Has the boot.ini file of the guest been edited with /PAE?

The host is a Quad core Dual Xeon server.

I have not changed the boot.ini file of the host. What is the parameter to put in is it /PAE?


It will be difficult for me to reboot the host I will see when I can arrange this.
