Basically what is planned is to have a prod environment with new quad Intels and a DR environment with dualcore amd's
Majority of the environment is linux ( suse )
Now i know about the cpu issues with both cold / hot migrations but has there been any changes in this?
We are going to be using SRM to manage failover etc but im just trying to figure out if its a feasible option to get some new intel servers or not ( from what i can see im guessing not )
Any input would be appreciated - Thanks in advance
there has been no change in the migration between AMD and Intel - you can only cold migrate-
If you find this or any other answer useful please consider awarding points by marking the answer helpful or correct
No changes indeed, just straight on cold migration. So failover from intel to amd with SRM shouldn't be a problem.
If you find this information useful, please award points for "correct" or "helpful".
I thought that because of the way that Linux discovers CPU type and features that your not even able to do cold migration? Supposibly tv kernel just panics...
