VMware VMotion CPU problem after vSphere upgrade

September 15th, 2009 3 comments

I wanted to install some DRAC 5 cards into each of my Dell PowerEdge 2900 VMware ESX hosts, so I decided to VMotion off the Virtual Machines onto other hosts in the cluster before shutting down the node. The first Virtual Machine migrated without a problem but when I tried a second I received an error stating the there was a CPU incompatibility between the host and the Virtual Machine.

VMware ESX date bug fix

August 20th, 2008 1 comment

I use VMware ESX 3.5 and Virtual Center 2.5 since implementing it at my current workplace. Like many sysadmins I regularly keep on top of patching. I manually patch my ESX hosts when I see fit after pulling updates through Virtual Center. Subsequently, I recently applied the latest update (3.5 u2 or update 2) to all ESX hosts. As a frequent reader of The Register I was later surprised to learn of a bug where people had encountered issues when booting or VMotioning Virtual Machines on or after 12th August 2008.
