CPU upgrade

Well I just bit the bullet and ordered a Zeon E3 1265L for my current running Gen 8

This server has ESXi 6 and an adaptec raid card with 4 drives, esxi loads from a Sata drive connected to the CD Rom Sata connector.

My question is, if I gracefully shut down my guests and host, then replace the CPU will it all work correctly when I turn it back on again? I would usually spend hours migrating the servers to a different host.

You have got a 1265Lv2 right? There is are 1265Lv3 and 1265Lv4 models as well which are not compatible.

No it is the cheaper more common 2.4ghz V1 version. Been looking for a V2 for a few of weeks and can't find one, I need more HP for my ESX it is really struggling with 4 guests and the Celeron
