Error in Active Directory Operations when Joining ESXi 6 to Active Directory


Recently when I was testing the ESXi 6 on my LAB running on VMware Workstation 11 I faced a nightmare when I tried to join the ESXi to the Active Directory.

As I started troubleshooting I re-assured all the prerequisites are met (such as NTP, DNS resolution) but the problem was haunting me.

As per the VMware guidelines when I tried to restart the lwsmd service via Tech Support Mode it was throwing the below errors

– lwsmd is not fully started

– likewise service manager [failed to set memory reservation] esxi

Then it clicked on me that may be this behaviour could be due to insufficient memory and after increasing the memory voila everything turned out to be working normally.
