I have a VM with my service provider that is running on MS HyperV. The server has 2GB RAM and 1 processor assigned to it with 100GB diskspace.
They installed Ubuntu 16 onto the VM at first but the mailinabox installer won’t proceed. I eventually got them to install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS as required.
However, now when I install, mailinabox claims that there is only 750MB RAM installed - below its required 1GB. Memory checks (free -h) reveal that there is only 750MB total memory. After assuming this to be an error in the server’s configuration, I was told that this is actually just how HyperV works: RAM is allocated dynamically as it is required, up to the configured maximum of 2GB.
How can I force mailinabox to install and ignore the 750MB “limit” which is not actually a limit, and install anyway?
Or are there any other workarounds for this issue?
