Now let’s modify the dynamic memory features to allow the virtual to take advantage of the new Dynamic Memory allowed by 2008r2 SP1.

Something else important when it comes to BigFix, is the number of cores utilized when working with virtuals.  In my test lab, I don’t expect to have any more than 100 endpoints, with the typical average hovering around 60-75.  With this in mind a simple setting of 4 cores is probably overkill however I don’t like to limit my virtuals and end up waiting.
