Verifying CPU compatibility

Jump to solution

Hello,

Our Datacenter has (2) 3 ESXi5 server DRS/HA clusters managed by VCenter5. I would like to combine them into a single cluster. How can I verify that the CPUs in Cluster1 will be compatible with the CPUs in Cluster2? In addition, if there is a compatibility issue how can I determine which EVC option is necessary?

Thanks,

Robert
