look at this website. You have to decide by your own if you need the new features or not.
But i think it´s worth the one reboot.
Sorry, accidently posted
Besides getting the following features when upgrading to version 7, Is there any other advantages to upgrading ( better HA monitoring, Better Performance, etc)?
• New storage virtual devices:
o Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) virtual device for Microsfot Cluster Service — Provides support for running Windows Server 2008 in a Microsoft
Cluster Service configuration.
o IDE virtual device — Ideal for supporting older operating systems that lack SCSI drivers.
• VMXNET Generation 3
• 8-way Virtual SMP
• 256GB RAM
• Enhanced VMotion Compatibility
• Virtual Machine Hot Plug Support
Also, what are the disadvantages?
no, i don´t think there are more advantages.No better HA monitoring (because upgrade your hardware do not upgrdate Cluster Features)
But i think thats a lot :smileycool:
New Network Card - could be ended in better performance.
Hot Plug Support for Hardware, could be ended in lower Serverdowntime
