Hi

I am building up an H/A VMware vCenter cluster and was hoping to utilise some stand-by servers I have.
The models are:

DL585 G5 & DL380G6 - Are these able to belong to the same H/A cluster in vCenter?

Cheers
Bry

Hey hi ryder0707 & paulsolov

Thanks again for answering a question of mine :-) (I am still trying to sort out a previous question that I wanted split between both you chaps so watch this space)

Brilliant, that's what I thought - I understand Intel to AMD is still not viable (vMotion/HA/DRS) but in general Intel or AMD compatible chips would be fine for vMotion/HA/DRS and I could even mix HP/DELL models etc?

Do either of you happen to know how far off the limit on a single vCPU for FT will be changed?

Cheers
Bry
