    ON website it says you need 4GB minimum RAM .. after installation it gives me the warning to occupying all RAM for virtual machine .. I am installing on windows machine …
    I am confused … how much RAM is needed upon installation and can I reduce to 2GB in order to keep 2GB for windows .. if so what are the complications .. has any one experienced such situation??

    Any input would greatly appreciated ..

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Yusuf,

    I think Sandbox Appliance by default imports with 2048 of RAM. I believe you can try 2 GB. Please let me know if this is helpful.
