Hi Team,

I want to use the Hotplug option, but I am getting this message while it triggers for increasing the CPU or Memory, Need some solutions to understand the issue.

We are using the Proxmox API to trigger the value. But In the end, I had to shut down the VM and restart it to enforce the new memory limit.

Error:

  1. PVE 6.x is EOL, please upgrade to 7.x
  2. hot unplugging of memory requires guest support, which seems to not be there in your case..

Thanks for your response,

I have completed point 1. Now its proxmox-ve: 7.2-1

Regarding point 2, Can you please elaborate in detail to understand, that "hot unplugging of memory requires guest support"

How to achieve the new memory limit using hotplug without rebooting/restarting the machine.?

Thanks

Try this two following commands, those two modules could be prebuilt in kernel.

grep "CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_ACPI=" /boot/config-`uname -r` CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_ACPI=y grep "CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG=" /boot/config-`uname -r` CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG=y
