I have to install VMWARE ESXi 5.5 as a Virtual machine on VMWARE 9 workstation. VMWARE 9 workstation is installed on windows 10 (64 bit OS). This is like nested virtualization.
However the virtual machines that will be running under VMWARE ESXi 5.5 will require 4 GB of RAM (64 bit OS). For testing purposes I will run one VM under ESXi with 4 GB of RAM. I have allocated 9GB of RAM to this ESXi 5.5 which is running as VM . Now when I give 9GB of RAM , VMWARE 9 gives me warning like this
32-bit host operating systems will be unable to power on virtual machines with more than 8GB of RAM.
Can someone please tell me what exactly this means? Is there anything I should be caring ? Please help and clarfiy
