    HotAddMemory DeployVM0 fails

    vladimir1974 Novice

      Hi,

       

      I successfully ran test with 8 tiles.

      When i try a test with 9 tiles, it fails while trying to hot add memory to one of DeployVMs. It manages to do it 7-8 times but eventually fails, with the following error:

       

      2020-05-14T13:54:38.785 [pool-3-thread-6] ERROR ST121 : Error: VM DeployVM0 : Unable to HotAddMemory to use 16384 MB

      2020-05-14T13:54:38.788 [pool-3-thread-6] ERROR MAIN : Exception Caught: Unable to HotAddMemoryDeployVM0 to use new Memory SettingMB: 16384 : exitSetting true

      Unable to HotAddMemoryDeployVM0 to use new Memory Setting :: Error Detail (if applicable): MB: 16384

       

       

      vCenter logs are rather curious:

      --> Result:

      --> (vim.fault.InsufficientMemoryResourcesFault) {

      -->    faultCause = (vmodl.MethodFault) null,

      -->    faultMessage = <unset>,

      -->    unreserved = 2376810364928,

      -->    requested = 1125899906318336

      -->    msg = ""

      --> }

       

      2376810364928 (2.3TB) is the cluster memory capacity. 1125899906318336 is almost 1PB.

       

      Any ideas what could be the reason for this failure?

       

      Kind regards,

      Vladimir
