    Technically you can do that this way - but you will have to reconfigure the instances because they are configured to use 8 and 4 GB of RAM. Consolidation is not about equalizing the RAM, why do you want to change the settings? You can likewise install both instances as they are now.

      Well, it actually is, but it's a different concept. Pooling resources is more about resource assignments on multiple Virtual Machines across multiple or single ESX hosts. Pooling resources for one Virtual Machine across multiple ESX hosts is not possible.
