Property Name Setting Description
EsxiMemReservedMB Integer Changes the percentage of memory in MB reserved on the ESXi host. The ESXi host requires some memory for the ESXi Hypervisor. Different systems will have different requirements. The default is 0.05 of the total memory, rounded down to a multiple of 4.
EsxiCPUreserved 0.00 - 1.00 Changes the percentage of CPU reserved on the ESXi host. The ESXi host requires some CPU power for the ESXi Hypervisor. Different systems have different requirements. The default is 0.12.
NoLockdown
  • TRUE
  • FALSE
Teradata recommends keeping this setting as FALSE which is the default setting.

When set to TRUE, the VMs do not allow security changes to be performed and also disables the root account when using SSH.

Setting this property to TRUE presents a high security risk. Use with caution.
