hostmemorylow Error

Postby borrisl » 26. Jul 2010, 19:26

Hello Virtualbox fans,

I have a Intel based, Windows 7 64bit host, with 6 gb ram.

If I allocate more than 1.5gb ram to the OS X Server guest everything works great..... for a while. Then I run up against the deadly "hostmemorylow" error. Even if I close every application and end every possible service AND it shows I have 2gb or greater ram free, I still cannot get out of pause and have to close the machine. I have it set at 1280 mb and so far everything seems ok (but slow). Any ideas? Is this a bug? Is cache not being cleared to the OS?

Are you running this on Mac hardware?

Sorry about that. I had thought that OS X Server was ok to run as a guest. It was my understanding that the OS X Client was the forbidden fruit.
