    Hi all

    So i have a Hyper V 2008 R2 lost with 36GB memory according to Virtual Machine Manager it has 202mb remaining.

    I am baffled how it is still running as I understand that the OS reserves 2GB approx and the host needs about 2GB
    None of the vm’s are using dynamic memory, so is its just when you use dynamic memory that the host reserves memory.
    Or does the host hold back memory when using static memory within vm’s as well ?

    Thanks for any pointers
