Dynamic Memory

Question Answer
Startup RAMSpecifies the amount of memory that you want to allocate to the VM when it starts
Minimum RAMSpecifies the smallest amount of memory the VM can use at any time
Maximum RAMSpecifies the largest amount of memory that the VM can use at any time
Memory BufferSpecifies a percentage that Hyper-V uses to calculate how much memory to allocate to the VM, compared to its actual utilization, as measured by performance counters
Memory WeightSpecifies a relative value that specifies the priority of this VM compared to the other VMs on the same computer. When the physical memory in the computer is insufficient to allocate the full-buffered amount specified for each VM, the VMs with the highest Memory Weight settings receive priority

Question Answer
CompactReduces the size of a dynamically expanding or differencing disk by deleting empty space while leaving the disk’s capacity unchanged
ConvertChanges the type of format of a disk by copying the data to a new disk image file
ExpandIncreases the capacity of the disk by adding empty storage space to the image file
ShrinkReduces the capacity of the disk by deleting empty storage space from the file
MergeCombines the data on a differencing disk with that of the parent disk to form a single composite image file

Virtual Switch Types

Question Answer
ExternalVMs running on the server’s parent and child partitions can all access the physical network to which the physical adapter is connected.
InternalVMs running on the server’s parent and child partitions can all access the virtual network implemented by the virtual switch; the host OS on the parent partition can access the physical network through the physical network interface adapter, but the VMs on the child partitions cannot access the physical network through the physical adapter.
PrivateThe host OS on the parent partition can access the physical network through the physical network interface adapter, but it cannot access the virtual network created by the virtual switch.

Hardware acceleration settings

Question Answer
Enable Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ)A technique that stores incoming packets intended for VMs in separate queues on the physical network adapter and delivers them directly to the VMs, bypassing the processing normally performed by the virtual switch on the parent partition.
Enable IPsec Task OffloadingUses the components on the network adapter to perform some of the cryptographic functions required by IPsec. You can also specify the maximum number of security associations you want the adapter to be able to calculate.
Single-Root I/O VirtualizationEnables the virtual adapter to take advantage of the SR-IOV capabilities of the physical adapter.
