Changes in ‘Intelligent Placement’ – SCVMM 2008 R2 SP1

Since SP1 now supports Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX and this will affect the ‘intelligent placement’.

·         Checking for GPU compatibility (RemoteFX VMs)
VMM will check that an identical GPU is available on the destination node. RemoteFX should be enabled in RDS.

·         Dynamic Memory footprint (VMs with DM enabled)
VMM will check the current memory usage on the running VM – and require that amount available on the destination node.
Example: If your VMs is configured with a startup RAM of 512MB, and currently using 4GB, the destination node must have at least 4GB available memory for a successful migration

You`ll find the settings for DynamicMemory in SCVMM on the properties on the VMs.
(If you need to configure the priority, this one is located under the ‘Priority-tab’ together with the CPU-priority)
