Table 3-1 lists the default guest settings for HP-UX, Windows, Linux, and Unknown guests. An Unknown guest is a virtual machine that has not booted with any operating system. When an Unknown guest type boots, the appropriate operating system type is applied to the guest configuration.

The following guest OS specific settings are applied if you specify the operating system type with the -0 option to the hpvmcreate command.

[1] The minimum memory requirement for HP-UX 11i v2 is 512 MB. The minimum memory requirement for HP-UX 11i v3 is 1 GB (see "System Requirements" section in the HP-UX 11i v3 Installation and Update Guide); however, the HP-UX 11i v3 Installation and Update Guide warns that cold installations with 1 GB or less memory might fail or take a long time to complete. Therefore, 2 GB is recommended for cold installations of HP-UX 11i v3.


NOTE: The amount of memory you should allocate to the guest must be sufficient to allow the guest operating system to boot. This amount might differ from the defaults documented here. For specific memory requirements, see the product documentation for the operating system and applications on the guest.
