Reduce nsx controller size

NSX Controllers are resource hungry and if you are going to run 3 at a time, it adds up at 4 cpus and 4 Gb each

Power off the controllers one at a time, and modify the cpu and memory in the vmx file

numvcpus = “2”
memSize = “2048”

I decided to leave sched.cpu.min = “2048” unchanged

Afterward reload the .vmx file using this command:

# vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms
# vim-cmd vmsvc/reload <vmid>


They should  now show up as x2 cpus and 2 GB of memory
