I have an esxi enterprise environment in a cluster with 5 Esxi hosts.
I want to give higher priority to few servers in termas of memory and cpu, that is, more resources for these servers.
I would appreciate if you put me in correct direction.

If you want to allocate more resources to virtual machines, do you want to ring fence or guarantee resources for them?

You could either Reserve or Guarantee the resources for each VM, or/and create a Resource Pool for ALL these VMs.

BUT, I would have to ask why, is your environment over subscribbed, and our these VMs suffering because resources are being taken away from them?

if I enabled DRS then a VM will get its memory or its  cpu based on the setting from entire resouces,
This way other VMs will not suffer, am I correct?

DRS just schedules and moves VMs from one host to another.
