The vRealize Business for Cloud server requires a minimum of 50 GB of disk space, 8 GB memory, and 4 vCPU. If you are deploying only the remote data collector, without the vRealize Business for Cloud server, you can reduce the memory size to 2GB.

  4. Click OK.

  5. Start the vRealize Business for Cloud virtual appliance virtual machine.

  6. Login to the virtual appliance and perform the following:

    1. Stop facts-repo by running the monit stop facts-repo command.

    2. Navigate to /etc/systemd/system/facts-repo.service and increase the memory parameter. For example, replace the -Xmx900m parameter to -Xmx1024m parameter.

    3. Run the systemctl daemon-reload command.
