Hi i m trying to understand the default behaviour. I have seceral VMs that are NOT in any resource pool.
I am being told that this is a big problem and these VMs will have higher priority for resources (in a contention) higher than the VMs in the default high priority resource pool.
For these VMs I have not set or configured any cistom share or limit settings on the VM - all left at default - on the resources tab they just say - normal and "greyed out" with 1000 in shares area - also no limit is ticked.
My question is how are these VMs using shares - if i havent set any settings on them - From online im reading the following:
" Ensure that each VM is placed in a resource pool and not out of all resource pools (look at point 4). VMs outside pools with shares configured could get more resources than VMs inside resource pool. "
- now given I have NOT touched shares for these VMs that are outside any resource pool - are they "configured for shares" at all? and as they are not is the advice im getting not in fact correct. Do these homeless VMs take priority anyway? thanks - Andrew Hancock - still here been great help in the past :)
