Hello guys'n girls. Have a little prob here.
I have Proliant ML350 G5 installed with Esxi 4. Within is humping 2 Win2K8 R2 servers.
Server has 16 gigs of memory and one Xeon 4 core @ 1.86Ghz
I would like to add an additional XEON to host server.
Is Vmware capable off handling this, or will the additional cpu installation crash the whole system to bits ?
Please, if anyone has done this, give me some insight of the matter.
Thx thousands in advance. /bow
There shouldn't be any issues with adding the second CPU. See ESXi 4 Free upgrade to 2 CPU's
Make sure the new CPU has the same stepping.
Welcome to the VMware Communities Forums. Your post has been moved to the ESXi forum.
You can simply drop in the CPU and boot the host, but a few things to be aware of -
1) Make sure the new CPU is exactly the same (family/model/stepping) as the old one.
2) You should have the correct licensing in place (ideally) before add the CPU.
