    Moving VMs between Host of different cpu spec

    Jamit200006 Lurker

      I am in the process of migrating a number of windows vms between some old infrastructure and new. The infrastructure is (cpu)Intel 2.4Mhz and the new is Intel 2.6Mhz. I am live vmotioning the VMs to limit any outage to the service.


      The new infrastructure has newly provisioned VMs running at 2.6Mhz. My question is if I move the older VMs running at 2.4Mhz what is the impact on the new host cpu? Does it run at 2.4Mhz or does it run at 2.6Mhz?


      I understand that the old VMs will run at 2.4Mhz until the VM's are shutdown. Interested what happens at the hardware layer.


      I running Esxi 5.5u3.
