vCenter server reboot

I am really new and I know this is going to sound stupid but I need to add some RAM to the vcenter virtual machine. Can I shut it down add memory and boot it back up and all will be well? I realize the services that will be down during that time but it will take only minutes. I appreciate your time.

no problem. Just log into the ESX where it's hosted, shut it down, add the additional resources and power it back on

Yes, he could, but that wouldn't solve his issue - he needs to add memory to the VM, not the host....
