Re: Memory quota in nova-compute nodes.

I'm working with Essex milestone 2 and I don't get it to work. I set
the parameter on every compute node.
root@os-compute2:~# grep memory /etc/nova/nova.conf
root@os-compute2:~# free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 2008 1951 56 0 0 48
-/+ buffers/cache: 1902 105
Swap: 2043 774 1269
But actually nova is spinning up 9 instances each using 512MB memory.
What I'm doing wrong?
Do I have to explicit enable the ZoneManager? If yes, how?
