Opened: Jan 20, 2014

Severity: 3-Major


Although the Nominal and Minimum provisioning levels are not supported in this release of software, the system does not prevent them from being configured. When doing so, the system automatically provisions the vCMP module to dedicated. If the system has already provisioned vCMP to the dedicated level, then any running guests will be restarted.


vCMP guests will be restarted, which might result in potential traffic lost.


vCMP is provisioned as Dedicated and provisioning is changed to the unsupported Nominal and Minimum levels.


If vCMP is already provisioned, do not attempt to adjust the provisioning levels to Nominal, Minimum, or Dedicated.
