Where can one find a doc on how to add RAM to a Nutanix cluster/node?

See a lot of replacement guides in the Portal. But so far nothing for adding/upgrading the RAM.
Think it's in one of the Admin manuals but just can't find it yet.

Cheers

Hi,

We have serious memory utilization issue.
Can we add additional Modules in NX 6035 G4 nodes.
If so what should be the procedure for the same.
Current capacity is 130 GB per node

Also where can we get information about free memory slots in prism.


Please help.

Jacmillan unfortunately you can not see it from Prism
if using ESXi
issued smbiosDump |grep -B 10 "Memory Device" |egrep Size from VMware CLI

to verify how many and what empty slots are in the node
#smbiosDump

if using AHV
issued dmidecode |grep -B 20 "Memory Device" |egrep GB from AHV CLI

to verify how many and what empty slots are in the node
dmidecode |grep -B 20 "Memory Device" |egrep GB
