vmware hot memory add in resource pool

I have increased memory from 1 GB to 2 GB I can see hot plug is enabled for this VM. It's a linux box, but it is in the resource pool, but hot memory add is not working, it is still showing as 1GB after I have added it. in the vsphere client it shows as 2GB.

Everything fine, only in OS level it is not showing up.  VMware tools are installed as well.

I already did those I can only see memory 0-7, it suppose to show more in OS, but not showing. I'm wondering, is it anything to do with resource pool?

Hi..

Even though it says it is hot enabled in esx 4.0 to 4.1 it will not work means that you can change the memory and cpu on the fly.  os willl not take effect until it is  rebooted.  i had  ffaced this issue...


But the good news in  esx5.1 or esxi 5.1 it is  working  with  no issues. With hardware  version 9.

Let me know if you have any concerns...

With regards
