Description Anitha Udgiri 2013-08-13 23:27:37 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to create a windows 2012 VM ( 64 bit) with 32G of Virtual memory, the process fails with the error message "Maximum memory size is 20480 MB."
(Image file attached for reference )

Other supported 64 bit VMs can be created without any issues with >= 32G of Virtual memory.

( Have attached engine.log and vdsm.log if needed )

The VM being created is "EpicorAppServer"

what is the value of VM64BitMaxMemorySizeInMB in VdcOptions(engine-config)?

> what is the value of VM64BitMaxMemorySizeInMB in VdcOptions(engine-config)?

    The value is VM64BitMaxMemorySizeInMB | 2097152 

Like I mentioned earlier, the Customer is able to create VMs with 32G memory for all other OSes.

I also see that windows 2012 is indeed supported ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=878674 ).. will change the summay accordingly.

I did not find anything relevant in the logs. Not sure if I missed anything.
Comment 8 Anitha Udgiri 2013-08-21 11:26:05 EDT
   Verified that the customer is using RHEV 3.2 ( rhevm-3.2.1-0.39.el6ev.noarch  ) via the rpms installed through log-collector output.

For 3.3. this is addressed by osinfo changes (http://www.ovirt.org/OS_info)
