Hello:

We have been using VMware for about 1 year.  Eveything is running just fine.  I just created a new VM and installed an Operating System on the VM.  however, when I began to install the OS on the new Virtual Machine the other VM's showed an alert.  The alert stated: "Virtual Machine Memory usage".

Everything appears to be still working and maybe I am worrying for nothing.  Perhaps I just need to re-start the other VM's?  Herei s a screenshot of the error...

 Shows Error
Again, this showed up when I began to install teh O.S. (Windows 2003 Server Std.) on the new Server 'WCDSymGhost'.

Here is what the 'Host' 'Summary' page looks like.

What are the other Virutal Machnes doing at present?

Backup?

You've got plenty of free RAM in the Host, maybe you need to increase the RAM in those other virtual machines.

Check what the VMs are presently doing.

What do MilkyWay and Voyager do?

Hello bqoering:

I like the patch idea; however, I am not sure how to apply it.  Must I logon to the ESX server to apply it?

Must I do this via vcenter?
