you will need atleast minimum 2GB to make it workable. and yes you can work without resource pooling. resource pool is create to have a better control and assignment of the compute and memory resources.

on the configuration tab, choose the "System Resource Allocation" link

Switch from "Simple" view to "Advanced" scroll down the tree there under host and find "VIM", select and then click the "edit settings" link

Under Memory resources you'll need to se the reservation limit to something lower. I think 512 is default, set it to 128 with expandable turned on and the limit set as 512.

Hi,

what is the memory of your host server and also the memory assigned to the virtual machine that you want to power up
