How to Increase the RAM Allocation for an Existing VRA in vCenter

KB Number:
000001701

Cause:
An administrator may encounter situations when it may be helpful to increase the reserved RAM on an existing VRA, such as a need for IO performance fine-tuning, or the need to service more disks simultaneously.  This article will outline the steps necessary to do so, without having to re-deploy the VRA.

Solution:

It is supported to change the memory allocation for a VRA from 3GB to 16GB.  To change the memory allocation for the VRA, please follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the VRA in vSphere Client, and choose Power > Shutdown Guest.
  2. Right-click on the VRA in vSphere Client, and choose Edit Settings.
  3. Under Hardware, select Memory.
  4. Change Memory Size to 3GB.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Right-click on the VRA in vSphere Client, and choose Edit Settings.
  7. Choose the Resources tab.
  8. Under Memory set the reservation to the amount of memory allocated in MB.
  9. Click OK.
  10. Power on VRA.

Bitmap sync is expected after the VRA is powered on
