    Just an FYI. If you upgrade from a previous version of ESXi, you inherit the previous heap size which is 256MB maximum. You will then have to edit the Advanced Settings of the host and increase it accordingly. New installs get the 640MB by default as Michael states.

    Great info Mike & Cormac. About to add a VM with a large storage footprint, and i had to refer back to this article to check what the sizes were.

    The advance setting is under VMFS3.MaxHeapSizeMB.
