VMware esxi Windows 2008 R2 Virtual Machine resource usage warnings
Posted on 2011-09-06
I have a new esxi 4.1 server that I just recently setup. I started receiving two different alarms:
Alarm 'Virtual machine cpu usage' changed from
Green to Red
"Warning message from dst-esxi-01.cri.local:
Insufficient video RAM. The maximum resolution
of the virtual machine will be limited to
1672x1254. To use the configured maximum
resolution of 2560x1600, increase the amount of
video RAM allocated to this virtual machine by
setting svga.vramSize="16384000" in the virtual
machine's configuration file.
Currently there is nothing running on the servers except Windows 2008 R2 with all available updates.
I have verified the VMware tools is installed on both machines.
I am fairly new to supporting VMWare so any advice anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you need any more information from me in order to help me.
