Hi Everyone,
Is Heterogeneous CPU Pooling supported with XCP 1.6 ?
What if I use completely different environments i.e. Intel and AMD ? will it work ? what all do I have to sacrifice if at all it works ?

Also asked about this in the #xen-api IRC channel. The feeling there was that you can't mix the hardware architectures because an HVM will "go crazy" when migrated to another architecture. Again, this is not a definitive answer, but I believe it is likely to be true.

    Regarding the heterogeneous pools in XCP 1.6, I see this thread which leads me to believe it works:

    However, I have not found anything yet which indicates that you can mix manufacturers. There's a XenServer 6.0 doc which says it must be the same vendor, but that doesn't answer your question definitively.
