C210 M2 and Vmware EVC

Gregg Hughes

Good morning, all!

I have two C210 M2 hosts in a VMware cluster and I'm adding a new host. This requires that I enable EVC to be sure HA works as desired. 

In VMware KB1003212, there's a note concerning the Westmere CPU and a BIOS setting: 

  • For Intel "Westmere" EVC Mode, some server OEMs might require you to enable the AES instructions in the BIOS.

Does anyone know whether the Cisco UCS C210 M2 falls under this note? The installed CPU is a Xeon E5620.

 

Thanks to all for looking!

 

Gregg

Greetings.

The c210m2s were capable of utilizing Intel Xeon 5600-series (Westmere-EP) or Intel Xeon 5500-series (Nehalem) CPUs.

Thanks,

Kirk...
