Server doesn't use all memory

NytroZ asked
Last Modified: 2016-08-31
I have a Windows 2012  x65 VM running in ESX 5.5.  SQL 2012 is also installed on this vm.  There is 24 GB of memory installed but no matter what is opened the vm will not access more than 4 GB of the 24 GB allocated to it.  Memory was recently upgraded from 4GB to 24GB.  Why is the vm not utilizing the added memory?
