FAQ: PCA Mixed version nodes in same track and Live Migration of VMs in an X4, X5 or X6 Mixed PCA Rack (Doc ID 2130104.1)

Last updated on MAY 04, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance X4-2 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Can we have mixed versions of compute nodes in same PCA rack? i.e. X4,X5 or X6 nodes in same PCA rack.
Do we need to create a separate group/pool for the new version nodes when the rack is upgraded with the higher version compute nodes ? example adding X6-2 nodes in a PCA rack consisting of x5 nodes.

Are there any known issues with VM Live Migration of VM's in PCA rack with mixed X4 & X5  or X6 Servers . i.e. Migrating vm's from X4 to X5 or X6 servers and vice versa.
