I have some new B200 M5 blades to which I will be moving some ESXi servers. The old blades are B200 M4. Both the M4 and the M5 use the VIC 1340 LOMs. Both blades will be booting from SAN.
I intend to migrate existing service profiles from the M4 servers to the M5 servers, so that the all ID, MAC, WWN, etc persist.
I do not expect any issues, but wasn't sure how ESXi would react to the underlying chipset and processor changes. Was wondering if anyone has ever encountered issues performing what I expect will be a relatively simple procedure. I am not expecting any PCI reordering since both use VIC 1340 and the vNIC/vHBA configuration is remaining the same.
