Today i have been helping a customer with their Hyper-V R2 Cluster and patching it with the hotfix for westmere processor. one strange issue was that we found two of the blades reporting only 36 GB RAM, while the others correctly showed 72 GB RAM. As it was another consultant that was responsible for assembling the servers we first thought that they had missed to put in all DIMMs, when we loooked in the servers all slots where filled? And when we put it back in the chassi and powered on the server correctly showed 72 GB RAM! really strange.
i used the following powershell commands in VMM powershell console to get the memory for the cluster nodes:
Get-VMHostCluster -name cluster01 Get-VMHost -VMHostCluster $VMCluster | ft Name, TotalMemory
If this happens again we will report it to the HP Support, (Edit) it happend again now.. it seems to be related to a reboot of the hosts 🙁
