i'm very new on virtualization world.
Two days ago i installed vmware ESxi, 6.7, to see if the solution is sustainable for me, so i'm using the Evaluation mode and in my VM settings i can't put more than 64 GB of memory and I need at least 128 GB (my server have physical 512 GB ).
I thought that the ESxi Evaluation mode don't have limit for the VM memory.
Thanks for your help.
And there's no limitation in Eval Mode around VM size. I always run with eval mode in our lab and have never hit this problem. Keep in mind though, that if you create a VM with 64GB of memory, it will also try to create a 64GB swapfile, so you need to have that diskspace available as well.
thank you for your answer.
I think i understood the problem. In fact, my VM comes from Workstation pro 15, it was actually created with 64 GB of memory, so I thought that by passing my ESxi I could have broken this limit.
To convert my VM i used Starwin V2V converter tool.
Is there any solution to my problem as I cannot recreate the VM.

I don't know if this will resolve the problem, but since the VM was created in Workstation, try to see if there is the following line in the vmx
virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted"
Remove that line and see whether it allows the VM RAM configuration to go beyond 64GB.
