How-to Live Migrate VMs between two Hyper-V hosts with different processors

In this article, we configure a Hyper-V VM to support live migration between Failover Cluster nodes when the two nodes have non-matching CPUs. This example is relevant to Hyper-V Failover Cluster environments where two hosts are configured as cluster nodes and the VM is configured as a Virtual Machine Cluster Role.

  1. With the VM powered off, open the VM settings dialog.

  2. Expand the Processor section and select Compatibility
  3. Check the box labeled “Migrate to a physical computer with a different processor version”

Now you can live migrate (move) the VM between two Hyper-V servers with different CPU processors versions.
