HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8 - Upgrading from 1 CPU +12slots of memory to 2 CPU & 24 slots.

Hi, is there anything I should take in to consideration when upgrading my hosts?

 

 

Im running:

HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8

1CPU (E5-2640)

8x8GB+4x4GB DD3  HP memory (1333mhz)

OS: VMware ESXi, 5.1.0, 1312873

 

and are planning to upgrade this to:

 

2 CPU + all slots with 8GB memory (same kind as the other 8GBs allready in place)

That means removing the 4x4GB ones.

 

 

Plan is to move all the vms to a secondary host, put the host for upgrade in maintenance mode, switch it off - replace the 4GB with 8GB, fill up the rest of the slots with 8GB and putting in the secondary CPU - then booting it back up. Seems right?

 

 

****Edit/

 

VMware Community told me to remove vm's from host (transfer them to a different host) and then remove the host from the cluster after shutting it down before upgrading it. After upgrade just add it to the cluster again and start.

Still waiting for the CPUs to arrive, then I will do this procedure.
