VMware restricting to 3GB RAM [CLOSED]

+2 votes

I am running VMware player on CentOS 5.4 and its working fine. However it does not allow me to increase the RAM more than 3GB. It keeps throwing error stating- "Requested memory size is greater than allowed maximum of 3072 MB. Could not initiate memory hot plug."

I understand from few threads that 32bit OS has this kind of limitation but I am able to understand why I am seeing this issue when I am using 64bit OS and VMware player is also for 64bit.

Check this VMware article and see if you fall within the limitations described:

Virtual machine memory limits and hardware versions (1014006)

Figured out the way. Upgrading VMwaretools did the trick.

Lets say, I have a system with only 1 core and with Windows OS. Using VMWare I am installing Linux on that. Can I share this core for VM and Base OS?

I mean if we have number of core 4 then in vmware we can assign 2 core. So, 2 Core for Linux and 2 core for windows. But what if I have number of core only 1, or if i have number of core 4 and in vmware I assign 4 core to Linux.

Will it share the core time wise?
