I have a production NSX setup running based on 5.5. Its a 2 node NSX cluster
I have a requirement where CPU of the hypervisor machines has to be upgraded from E5-2650v3 to E5-2690v3.
Though both of the series seems supported in compatibility matrix, is there anything that should be taken care with this upgrade ? Are there any possibilities of issues to Hypervisor itself which change in CPU ?
Also, if we do a phased upgrade i.e. moving all the VMs to NSX01 first, upgrade NSX02, once upgraded, move back everything to NSX02, & upgrade NSX01. Any issues with this approach ?
I don't believe there should be any impact though but seeking any other expert opinions.
We did perform this activity & no outage was observed... Ensured that new CPU belonged to same family (Haswell) & both the CPUs were part of supported matrix ..
