We have a small 5 node cluster in a DMZ. They are running on IBM 3650M2 with 88 GB RAM. All running ESX 4.1.0 502767.
We have recently been doing work in there. Removing the v1000 switches. When we noticed our empty hosts all had a consumed memory of about 30GB even with nothing on it. We pulled one of the host out of cluster, even out of the vCenter completely. Rebooted and same thing. Even as a standalone host with nothing on it the Consumed memory is 30GB.
Just wondering if anyone has run into this issue or anything like it.
