Both the processors are : Dell PowerEdge 2950 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU
While trying to carry out the vmotion of one of my VMs (running Suse Linux 9 64-bit), the validation failed saying that the CPUs are incompatible.
Following is the exact error :
The CPU of the host is incompatible with the CPU feature requirements of virtual machine; problem detected at CPUID 0x80000001 register 'edx'."
I found the differing entries as follows :
On server 1:
edx string "0010:0000:0001:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000"
On server 2:
edx string "0000:0000:0001:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000"
After going through some of the VMTN topics, i figured out that if i mask off that particular feature bit by marking 'X', i should be able to carry out vmotion. After trying this the validation now succeeds but now i get following error and the migration fails:
"A general system error occured: Failed to resume on destination."
Not sure what's wrong now. Can't find any entries in the hostd.log file on the source or destination server. Can someone tell me what's going on here ?
