Doc Text:
The 32-bit memory limit was used for 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Windows operating systems. As a result, a warning was displayed when trying to configure a virtual machine with memory exceeding the 32-bit limit but valid for 64-bit systems. With this update, 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Windows operating systems use appropriate limits and no warning is returned for the correct limits.
