With default PVE settings i can not assign more than 44 Gb of RAM
with this workaround (
with content:

options vhost max_mem_regions=509

I'm able to setup more RAM however I'm wondering why PVE team has not included this to defaults?
Does it mean that such modification is not recommened by Proxmox dev? In this case what is the official way to remove such limit?

Thanks in advance
