Hey there, I have a server 2008 R2 enterprise server with 3VM's running right now.
Physical server has 48GB RAM

VM1=4096MB
VM2=16384MB
vm3=4096MB

I go to create a 4th VM and assign 16384MB RAM to the unit and start it and it fails with 3030 and 3040 errors.  I drop the RAM to 4096 and it will start.

What am I missing?  I need 16384 for my 4th VM
THank you

I would boot it with 4gb, download and install the updates.  Do you have SP1 installed yet?

You are already running VM 2 with 16GB correct. So why don;t you just clone the VM2 to create VM4 and all the settings will remain the same.
