Addin CPU to a ESXI Servor

Level 6

Hello Experts,

We are migrating all our PRIs to SIP trunks using 2 Virtual SBCs but we are missing CPUs and RAM in our ESXI server to accommodate the new SBCs. Would that be possible to add CPU and RAM with larger capacities in the same server? Is it supported by Cisco?

Thanks,

MK

If you’re using a Tested Reference Configuration of the Cisco UCS servers specific to Collab, no you cannot modify the hardware components. If you’re willing to shoulder the increased customer support responsibilities of a specs-based deployment you can add whatever you want to the server so long as it complies with all of the virtualization requirements for Cisco Collab generally and the Catalyst 8000v specifically. For the most part though: this is on you as the customer to competently design and operate the underlying compute and storage infrastructure. If TAC has reason to believe an issue is caused by the hypervisor or supporting infrastructure, they’re going to bow out and tell you to fix that.

What does this have to do with anything relate to Collaboration? If your using Cisco server hardware your better off if asking this on the Data Center part of the community. If your using other vendor hardware it's a question to ask them. Cisco does not have any relation to supportability of this, meaning it's out of scope as a question related to Cisco.

May be some else can answer this question:

Thank you Jonathan,

Still this is a question that would be better if asked in the Data Center part of the community as it has no relevance to Collaboration. I will move your question over there.
