When you disable a resource pool, the memory and compute resources of the resource pool are no longer available to the provider virtual datacenter

You must have at least one enabled resource pool on a provider virtual datacenter. Disabling a resource pool does not prevent its resources from being used by processes that are already in progress.


  1. Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click Provider VDCs in the left pane.
  2. Right-click the provider virtual datacenter name and select Open.
  3. Click the Resource Pools tab.
  4. Right-click the resource pool and click Enable or Disable.
