I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard box using Hyper-V. The box has 12GB of RAM. It is running 4 VMS which are
File Server 2GB RAM
DC-EX 2GB RAM
Accouting 3GB RAM
EX 2GB RAM
Thats a total of 9 GB of RAM. I am guessing that the reaming 3GB of RAM are being used by the Hyper-V Server? Is there a way to determine that? I right clicked on my computer>properties and it says 12GB which is what the server has installed but doesnt show what the OS is using for itself. The VMs run fast but the Windows Server 2008 R2 Server (with Hyper-V) runs slow. I am going to purchase 32GB of RAM to add to the box. Would that make a difference? Also how do I allocate more RAM space to each VM once I get more RAM.
I know its more then one question but they all go hand and hand with eachother. Thanks for youe help.
