When I try to power up my VM, I get the following error
Invalid memory setting;  memory reservation should be equal to memsize

Open in new window


I see my mem size in Edit Settings->Memory.  It is set to 4 GB

In what path can I see my memory reservation ?    

How can I fix this ?

Thanks

Yes you need to set your reservation to zero or something less <= 4gb.
