I have recently upgraded to ESXi 4 and I noticed that under the Video Card tab (for VM Properties) there is the option to set 'Maximum number of displays' (1-10) and ability to reserve memory for a given configuration (i.e. color depth & display resolution). This is incredibly exciting for me as the lack of dual monitor support stopped our full adoption of virtualisation. If I am able to get dual monitor support in (1920x1200x32bit) in windows xp (virtualised on ESXi 4 obviously) then I can start to roll out over 20+ vms to take over from our current physical machines.
My problem is that the setting always seems to revert to 'Maximum number of displays' = 1 no matter what settings you pick and when the VM is booted up there is only one monitor available in display properties.
Can any one shed some light on why the option is there if it is being ignored? This is incredibly important to me personally and any help would be extremely appreciated.
