You also have 8GB or ram and that is in there for swap file.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for responding.

Can you enlighten me on 'swap file', and where it needs to be configured on the VM?

Cheers

Carlton,

You have configured the VM with 8 GB of memory. When you will start that VM it will create same size of swap file on datastore i.e. 8 GB. You can change the swap file location.
