I have a problem with finding the right cpu mask, i hope that someone can help me out on this one.
Underneath is the error that i get:
Underneath are the cpu mask of both the machines that are different:
This is the second host:
As displayed in the error from the first screenshot is guys wrong on an ECX lvl.
Can someone explain and find me the proper cpu mask please.
And where i need to add this mask.
I also used this site for some extra info but that didn't help:
i know have tried this now also.
But when trying to create the EVC cluster a get 2 groups of each 3 ESX servers.
I want to be able to deploy all vm's on all ESX hosts, so i can also easy upgrade ESX to 4.0
That is why i really need to have that cpu mask.
VMotion CPU Compatibility Group
ESX 4.x, ESX Server 3.x, and ESX Server 2.x
Without SSSE3, SSE4.1, or SSE4.2. Models include: Dual-core Xeon LV based on Intel Core microarchitecture. For example, Sossaman.
For A<->B VMotion, apply SSSE3 mask. (Not supported)
With SSSE3. Without SSE4.1 or SSE 4.2. Models include: Intel Xeon CPUs based on the Intel Core microarchitecture. For example, Intel Xeon 30xx, 32xx, 51xx, 53xx, 72xx, or 73xx.
For B<->C VMotion, apply SSE4.1 mask. (Not supported prior to ESX 3.5. Experimentally supported for ESX 3.5 and later only.)
With SSSE 3 and SSE4.1. Without SSE4.2. Models include: Intel Xeon CPUs based on 45nm Intel Core microarchitecture. For example, Intel Xeon 31xx, 33xx, 52xx, 54xx, or 74xx.
For C<->D VMotion, apply SSE4.2 mask. (Not supported prior to ESX 3.5. Experimentally supported for ESX 3.5 and later only.)
With SSSE3, SSE4.1, and SSE4.2. Models include: Intel Xeon CPUs based on Intel Nehalem microarchitecture (Core i7). For example, Intel Xeon 55xx.
