Hi Experts,

I'm not a server guy. This is a question about ESX host and VMs.

Let's say an ESX HOST HAS:

Processor:  2 x Quad-Core Intel Xeon, 2333 MHz
HD: 500GB

If you create a VM and give it 2GB of RAM and 2ghz processor and 200GB HD, does that subtract from the  ESX HOST?
So that will leave the ESX HOST with less processor, 2GB ram, and 300HD space?
