Hyper-V Dynamic memory

I have a server running Hyper-V, host is  Windows 2008 Datacenter SP2.  I am trying to get dynamic memory working for the VM clients.  I notice that in the Hyper-v host manager the Current Memory and Memory Available are absent in the manager view.  Is there something I need to configure for the host to make the dynamic memory option available?    

On the VM client I have upgraded the integration services and rebooted the machine.  When I look at the settings for the client I only have the static memory option..  

Any assistance would be most appreciated.

Dynamic memory is a feature of Hyper-V in 2008 R2, so you need to upgrade the host.

What are your clients running? Not all clients support dynamic memory. What are te VM memory settings set to.  It's not used automatically, you have to give it a range.  In the hyper-v manager, right click.on a column - is there an add columns option (don't have access to a hyper-v system at the moment or I could be more definitive
