    Increase Service Console Memory via Kickstart Script

    Stuarty1874 Enthusiast


      Folks,  I've tried to use the following in my %POST% section of my Kickstart scripted install but it kills my host.  I'm trying to increase the Service Console RAM to 800MB.



      1. This section configures Service Console Memory to 800MB



      mv -f /etc/vmware/esx.conf /tmp/esx.conf.bak



      sed -e 's/boot\/memsize = \"272\"/boot\/mesize = \"800\"/g' /tmp/esx.conf.bak >> /etc/vmware/esx.conf



      mv -f /boot/grub/grub.conf /tmp/grub.conf.bak



      sed -e 's/uppermem 277504/uppermem 523264/g' -e 's/mem=272M/mem=800M/g' /tmp/grub.conf.bak >> /boot/grub/grub.conf



      I get the attached error on reboot....



      Any ideas?
