Any issues with increasing RAM after a P2V???

I recently P2V'd a legacy server. It is running Windows Server 2003 Standard. It only has 768MB of RAM. This is the amount of physical RAM the legacy box had. I placed the VM on to an ESXi 3.5 host.

Can I just power off the VM and increasing the RAM to whatever I want? The ESXi host itself is a Proliant 380 G5 and has 30GB of RAM. Currently only about 5GB is being used by a couple of other VMs. Thanks!

Yes, you should be able to just power off and increase memory for the server.
