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.
