Can I change the RAM available on a virtual machine without having to reboot?

I would like to know if there is an option to change the RAM available on a virtual machine without restarting the virtual machine. I saw this old news item that says that it is

possible (, but I don't know how to do it. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

  • How can I change the names of directory of virtual machine in VMWare ESXi data storage?

    I've always used host names, but I have changed several times, since the structure is bigger and I now 25 virtual machines. I started renaming to v, s, w - and then their hostname.

    For now, the data store directory is a real mess without the new structure and it bothers me. Is it possible to rename directories? Perhaps using vcenter? I would like to see a beautiful tree as: DWT-win2003, centos5 tpl, tpl-debian6, s-server01, server02-s, w-exchange01, w-mssql01, just as I renamed it to VMS. I tried the migration option, but it only allows for migration between host data warehouses and not to rename the directory that hosts the virtual machine.

    How can I change the my data store directory structure? I have considered changing the paths and edit vmx files to correct the paths, and then add servers to be inventoried. But I don't really know if this can be done without penalty or if there is a better solution.

    the easiest way, continuously needs storage vMotion of the guest.  It renames the folder and the underlying file for the same as the name of object of vCenter. If you don't have much storage vMotion, then turn off the prompt and do a cold migration.

  • Can I use the same windows on my virtual machine?

    I had windows pre-installed in my dell laptop (Latitude E6420). I did not have the cd key but I extracted using a program called Magical jelly bean key finder. Now, I have the following information on my windows installation

    Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1
    Product no.: XXXXXXXX
    Installed from media "OEM."
    Computer name: XXXXX
    Registered owner: XXXXX
    Registered organization: Microsoft
    Now, I want to install linux on my machine and use the current windows in a virtual machine inside the linux host. Is is possible if I completely uninstall this windows of my computer and reinstall the virtual machine with the same key?
    I'm not very familiar with this also can someone guide me what are the steps I have to take if this is possible.

    Hi Andre,

    Thank you for your answer, but this does not completely answer my question. I also read that OEM installation does not install the same windows on another machine (virtual machine is like different machine even if I do this on the same machine) and installation of the mine is OEM type.

    More important still, how install windows in the virtual environment? If I format the computer and install linux, in addition to this install virualbox and install inside windows that use the cd - key and it will work. ? I doubt it because the windows is already activated in this machine.

    The extract of the contract (EULA) for Windows 7 and applies to the retail and OEM of Windows 7 versions. So, Yes, you can reinstall it in a Virtual Machine.

    Yes, you will need to format the machine under Linux, then reinstall Windows 7 in a computer program virtual suitable as Oracle Virtual Box 4.2, VMWare Player 5.0 or VMWare Workstation. You can then use the product key located on the COA sticker to reactivate the license.

  • How can I change the network address of my Time Machine drive?

    Hi people,

    This is my second question in 12 hours. Thanks to help I received here, I abandoned my doomed attempt to use my old AirPort Extreme and a USB key for Time Machine backups.

    I've used my ReadyNAS for Time Machine backups, but it has never been reliable. I think I have tracked the question and I would like to try again. However, Time Machine remembers the old network address for the ReadyNAS unit (smb://NAS_TimeMachine.local/ReadyNAS) and does not 'see' the same unit at current address (afp://[email protected]/NASTimeMachine). You could collect that networking is not something I understand.

    I think that this can be also responsible for the boring 'There was a problem... "messages that I receive at startup telling me the drive could not be mounted.

    Is there a way to force the time Machine to forget the old address and 'see' a new?

    See you soon,.


    (PS I have also posted this question on the legacy of networking community, but I think it's a better place for this)

  • Change the operating system selected a virtual machine under tension in vCenter

    Is this possible? I looked in the box change the Settings - Options - but I can't see the usual fall down?

    You should turn off the machine.

    If you have made a mistake by setting for 32-bit or 64 - bit or vice versa, it does not really affect the virtual machine.

    If you have entirely changed the operating system, then you will need to power off and do it right that there is again a critical impact. the operating system you choose decides the type of SCSI controllers and things.

    I suggest you set a stop and do time.

  • How can I change the standard account on behalf of Administrator without administrator privileges?

    Original title: uac is restricting my access Add or change account

    My uac has no opition for Yes just not how to change my standard account to administrator account

    and how would I do that I deleted my hidden administrator account and my off my guest account so if I didn't change anything, I have to be an administrator if he allows me to have Yes tab revealed to a click...

    When you say that you moved your hidden administrator account, are you talking about the account named "Administrator"? Since it is a built-in account, Windows won't let you remove it.

    If you are referring to your own admin account then removing would be to throw out your safe master key. I can't quite work on how you could do that, but you can get it from this reckless action as follows:
    1. Set your BIOS so that it uses the DVD drive as its primary boot device.
    2. Start the computer with your Windows 7 repair CD.
    3. Press a key when prompted to boot from the DVD.
    4. Select 'PC Repair' in the menu.
    5. Select 'Repair' when prompted.
    6. When you are prompted, select System Restore.
    7. Configure Windows to a point before you did what you did.
    8. Plan ahead a little and create, test and document an alternative admin account, same as you have a spare emergency House key. This will save you a lot of trouble.

    No, you can not do it yourself. The system will automatically change to the need for more ram.
