Configuration changes after adding RAM to ESXi host in Vsphere 5

Hello EE,

I have Cisco B200 Blade servers and have more memory to add for our VMWare Vsphere 5 enviornment and i understand how to install it into the hardware, but after bootup do I have to make any configuration modifications on the ESXi box to see the new RAM or will it just boot up with it?

ESXi is "plug and play", it will autodetect more memory, and just start using it. No configuration other than add correctly to the server as per guides and manual.

It should be a plug and play installation. ESXi should be able to recognize the additional RAM without further configuration.
