If not did NOT enable Memory Hot plug, then you will have to power down VM to add memory. In web client, go to VM, right click and select EDIT SETTINGS.
Under Virtual Hardware, expand Memory and you will see a check box for Memory Hot Plug. Enable this and make the necessary RAM changes there so in the future you will be able to adjust RAM on the fly without a reboot.
