How to increase the memory allocated to the service console

Increasing the memory allocated to the service console in ESX 4X from 300mb to 800mb requires editing of two files. The files are esx.conf in the /etc/vmware directory and grub.conf in the /boot/grub directory. 800mb is the maximum allowed. The swap partition should be changed as well from 600mb (twice the ram allocated to the service console by default) to 1600mb maximum.

# vi /etc/vmware/esx.conf
           uppermem=818176

# vi /boot/grub/grub.conf
          mem=800
