    Hi Everyone !

    what to select in the option for EVC Configuration ?
    for CPU Intel xeon Gold 6140 @2.30Ghz will be CPU intel xeon E5-2697 v4 @2.30Ghz.

    I am having trouble understanding the compatibility guide in vmware website

    EVC is used to ensure that VMs run pn a common CPU instruction set, so what you want to select is the lowest supported level for both CPU models. In this ase it's Broadwell due to the E5 processor.

    Note that you cannot change (lower) the EVC level, if you have VMs that were powered on on the Skylake CPU, i.e. with a newer instruction set that the E5 processor supports.
