    CentOS hardware upgrade

    I currently have a Lenovo Thinkserver rd230 with a single Xeon E5607. I am wanting to upgrade to dual Xeon X5670.

    Will I have to reinstall my webserver? If not will I need to do anything inside CentOS or will it just work after upgrading the processors?

    Hi and welcome,

    if it is a centos 5 or 6, then there is nothing to do except maybe adjust load warning/critical threshholds of the monitoring/graphing to the different number of cpus.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    +1 to Irithori here - I've upgraded hardware under Centos 5 many times, and it just sorts itself out. I've even gone from Intel to AMD hardware. And back again. It's all been fine.
