VMM: Not Enought Memory on Host error - any issues with Intel Xeon westmere chips?


Recommended Posts



I've been toying around with VMM on a spare machine and have got the cluster to work by setting the NIC MAC to the real mac address, but I've hit an error where by the virtual machine will not start with the error: "Failed to power on the virtual machine " name of my VM" on the host " name of my NAS" due to insufficient RAM on the host".


The test machine is a Westmere based Intel Xeon L5630 chip on a Supermicro X8DTL-iF with 8GB Ram.  Virtualisation is enabled in the Bios /VT-D/V-TX) and the machine is booting fine... but trying to create any VM in VMM displays the above error.  The VMs all have less than 4GB of ram assigned so its not a real ram issue.


Anyone use westmere based chips with VMM?  Any pointers?
