Installing ESXi and upgrading the hardware after

hello

I plan to install EsXi 4.1 on a dell R710 server

Actually the dell R710 is single processor and 6 Go ram

I plan do upgrade to dual processor and 32 go ram

Can I install ESXi before upgrading and  after add a second processor and memory ? Does EXSI recognize the 2nd processor automatically  ?

thanks

Hi

I did it once on IBM hardware, ESXi recognzes second processor after hardware upgrade.

Cheers

Absolutely.  You can add procs and mem after the installation with no problems.
