VPX - Extra management CPU

Rowen Gunn

Recommended Posts

I have 4 CPUs  (aka cores in ESX) assigned to my VPX 3000 currently and would like to enable an extra management CPU. When I attempt to do that I get this error:


"Operation not permitted. PE pool is not enough to enable additional management CPU"


So do I need to add a 5th CPU to my VPX 3000 to enable the extra management CPU function?

The feature "Extra management CPU" is only available through MPX appliances. 


As you are on VPX 3000, assigned 4 vCPU, you are using the max. of Packet CPUs (3) + 1 Mgmt CPU. See this guide https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX139485


Thank you! Citrix support told me this would work on our VPX 3000 but adding a 5th CPU failed. Thanks for the correct information!
