I disabled HA and Admission Control, but sill keep getting the same message

Any Help?

How much memory does the host have, and how much memory is assigned to the VMs ?

Screenshots would be good.

Vcenter has 12 GB RAM and the 2 VMs have 2GB each

So you have

vCenter Server - 11.7GB
VM1 - 2GB
VM2 - 2GB

So a total of 11.7+2=2 = 15.7GB

How much memory in the Host ?

Host not have enough memory ?

It is VM Workstation.
I have 2 ESX hosts and Virtual shared storage from Starwind.
I have Vcenter from which I added the 2 ESXi hosts and create VM Win-7-1 then cloned another WM from it.

***I believe I should have bumped The memory of the ESXi hosts instead of the Vcenter..
