When attempting to add a net-new or replacement compute node into an HCI cluster, the Easy Scale function of the NetApp Deployment Engine (NDE) fails to add the node and generates the error below:

Error Statement: {'task_id': 'task:14', 'error': '(vim.fault.EVCAdmissionFailedCPUModelForMode) {\n dynamicType = <unset>,\n dynamicProperty = (vmodl.DynamicProperty) [],\n msg = "The host\'s CPU hardware does not support the cluster\'s current Enhanced vMotion Compatibility mode.
