Edit Virtual Machine

Changes to virtual machine configuration do not have an immediate effect on a running virtual machine. The virtual machine must be stopped and then started for the hypervisor to reload the virtual machine configuration. A restart does not force the hypervisor to reload the configuration.

To edit a virtual machine:

  1. Click the Servers and VMs tab.

  2. Select the server pool on which the virtual machine resides in the navigation tree.

  3. Select Virtual Machines from the Perspective drop-down list. Select the virtual machine in the management pane, and click Edit... Edit... icon in the management pane toolbar

  4. The Edit Virtual Machine dialog box is displayed. Select each tab to edit the virtual machine configuration. See Section 3.1.3, “Create Virtual Machine” for the details of each tab. Click OK to save the changes.


    It is not possible to dynamically change resources such as the number or processors or allocated memory for an Oracle Solaris virtual machine without first enabling the drd service on the virtual machine itself. To allow for these changes, connect to the virtual machine and make sure that the drd service is enabled:

    # svcadm enable -s drd
    # svcs drd          

    These commands should notify you that the service is online. When you have performed these actions, you are able to use Oracle VM Manager to dynamically change the allocation of resources.
