    • In this example, we are changing the CPUs from 2 to 1 and memory from 2048 MB to 1024 MB.
    • Since this action allows changing the amount of pool resources, a line showing current and maximum usage for CPU, memory (in GB), and disk (in GB) is displayed on the form for reference.
    • This action requires that the virtual machine be powered off, or else it will fail to change the values sucessfullly.

    • Once the status changes back to "Successful", it is complete. If it failed, you can find details by clicking the request number.
    • In this example, the virtual machine was not powered down before attempting to change CPU/memory amounts:
