Unable to change memory setting of CDH5; Was able to do this in CDH4



I wanted to reallocate the memory for CDH5 but was unable to. The default is 4 GB but I want change this to 3GB. I was able to change this in CDH4. 

After starting the Virtual Machine, I click on CHD5 -> Edit Virtual Settings - Slide the memory bar to the right memory GB. In CDH5, the memory setting bar is disabled.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hi Lokesh,

Your virtual machine must be in suspended mode/Save mode. Please first shutdown/power-off the machine then it will let you manage memory.

Hope this helps.
