Adding DL360 gen9 to gen7 vmware cluster

Dear forum


At this moment I have a vmware essentials plus 5.5 U2 cluster with two DL 380 & 360 G7 servers.


I an looking in to add a third server and thinking of adding a NEW DL 360 Gen 9,


Are there any major issues I can encounter adding a new server with different more advanced processors.


having the same memory on all server 



Re: Adding DL360 gen9 to gen7 vmware cluster



I strongly suggest not to mix the different generation servers, as the processor in each of these generation has different enhancements.


So when you a mix of servers with different generations then the lowest generation server processor features  will be taken as the baseline.


These can effect the overall performance.
