Hot-add memory to SuSE / VMware virtual server


Hi, Here is the issue. Some more memory has been added from vCenter to the virtual machine. From the virtual machine running SuSE 11 SP3.

# modprobe acpiphp
# modprobe acpi-memhotplug
# grep -v online /sys/devices/system/memory/*/state
#

It looks like there is no offline memory, but free command doesn't show the added memory.

Please help! Thank you in advance!

You did run:

Code:
# modprobe acpiphp
# modprobe acpi-memhotplug
.. before you added the memory, correct?

I run those commands after memory is added from vCenter based on the same link site. Any differences between before and after? Thanks.

The order in the article is pretty specific, insert the modules then increase the memory.
