    Enable .vmem files creation on a running virtual machine in vSphere

    KChuxlancev Lurker



      I know that .vmem file in virtual machines is a paging backup file. I get this file created when I suspend my VM or make a snapshot, but the VMWare documentation clearly states that it is possible to have this file created on a running VM (or the one that is stopped with a crash). I suspect some setup is required in Advanced tab of .vmx settings, I would greatly appreciate if I would get an advice of what particular flags (or/and parameters) need to be set for this.
