VMWARE 5.5

I already see 1 cpu and 4gb ram installed but is greyed out.

I was told to do below

I have  to add 1 cpu and 4gb additional ram to windows server 2008R2 which is on VMware 5.5
right now both cpu and memory are greyed out because looks to me I don’t have Hot-Add/Hot-Plug capabilities

HOW DO I INSTALL THAT

If you have not enabled Hot Plug CPU and Memory on the VM, which you need to do, before you use those options, they are not enabled by default.

OR you do not have a license for Hot Plug CPU and Memory.

You will NEED to Power OFF the VM, Right Click the VM Edit Settings, and change the CPU and Memory.

Also remember not all Operating Systems support Hot Plug CPU and Memory.
