As the title stated, does someone know whether I can run AsynDR on OEM hardware just as Dell, Lenovo... or not?
I have a customer wanting to create a AsyncDR session to backup files from a Nutanix cluster to a Nutanix on Dell servers.
Is there any limitation so far?
Thanks.

Hi @hienle

Yes you can, because during the failover process, the VMs will be rebooted on DR site and even if you have different CPU models, during the boot the VMs will detect the new CPU.

Thanks a lot for your information.
By the way, can we receive the support from Nutanix in this case (via opening Nutanix support ticket or something)?

Hi @hienle

Since one of your cluster is running on Nutanix hardware, you can open a case directly on Nutanix and for the nodes running on OEM, you may have to open the case first with Dell/Lenovo and they will open the case with Nutanix if needed.
