The error received is:
The virtual machine requires hardware features that are unsupported or disabled on the target host:
* Carryless multiply (PCLMULQDQ) (see KB 1034926)
* AES instructions (AES-NI) (see KB 1034926)
If possible, use a cluster with Enhanced vMotion Compatibility (EVC) enabled; see KB article 1003212.
CPUID details: incompatibility at level 0x1 register 'ecx'.
Host bits: 0000:0010:1001:1000:0010:0010:0000:0011
The DL380pG8 has the latest firmware so I am sure that AES is enabled.
Am I FUBARed trying to vMotion between my 2 servers or is there a way of working around it?
Have you turned on EVC on the cluster? As the two processors of different models the vmotion will not happen unless you enable EVC
Many thanks for the reply, now if I may ask another silly noob question....
I can see in my server summary that EVC is disabled. How/where do I enable it? I have had a hunt around the settings and found a couple of vMware KB documents, but can't seem to enable it?
Probably should have mentioned - vSphere Essentials 5.5
I don't see a cluster; I see vcentre server, data centre and servers.
I will play around a little bit more later this evening and see what I can see.
Thanks very much for your help.
