I currently have a cluster of 4 servers (Intel Xeon Gold 5220). I need to add another server to the cluster but I don't have EVC enabled and this host has an older chip (Intel Xeon Gold 5120).

I know I need to power off the VM's before enabling EVC but I also see that I might need to move my vcenter to another cluster and move the servers to that new cluster (

The article looks old and the versions only mention up to 6.0.x.  I currently use vSAN for this cluster but I have the vCenter on a local SSD on one of the hosts.

Am I able to enable EVC without having to add a new cluster?
