I have a set of hp servers that are HP dl380 E5620 G7s that are used as ESX 4.1 servers. I have them set up to do vmotion and to do fault tolerance. I've just received another set of servers, however they are E5649s.
The E5620s are 8 core dual proc while the E5649s are 6 core dual proc.
My gut tells me that these two different hardware specs won't be compatible with each other for the purposes of vmotion/fault tolerance, so I want to return them, but I need confirmation of it before I return them.
I'm simultaneously asking you guys as I'm contacting vmware as I can't find anything for or against this for compatibility issues on their site.
