hyper-v seems to have a memory leak


  • I am running the hyper-v role on server 2016.  I have a couple of Ubuntu VMs that are running fine, but now any time I try to create a new Ubuntu VM, the Hyper-V Manager shows memory demand quickly increase to whatever I set the maximum memory limit to.  This happens as I am installing Ubuntu from ISO, happens if I run Ubuntu from the ISO instead of installing, happens after I install and run Ubuntu from the VHDX.  Basically every time I start the newly created VM, it'll max out memory demand within 1 minute--even if I set the max to the over 200GB that my machine has available.  This was never a problem before (created a Ubuntu VM a month ago and it still runs fine).

    I am running the same version of Ubuntu on the new VM as I have running on the old ones that still work (16.04.4).  I'm wondering if some update was made to work for the new 18LTS that broke the ability to create a new 16.04 VM
