What BIOS settings have to be enabled for Proliant DL380 Server?

Jump to solution

We are going to install ESXi 4.0 on a HP Compaq Proliant DL380 Server.

We would like to know what options in BIOS should we have to enable (Like: Intel VT Support) ?

Thanks

I don't change many BIOS options on my equipment except for enabling the no execute memory and enable virtualization technology for the processor. Here is a thread that posed the same question, http://communities.vmware.com/thread/125837?start=0&tstart=0

Here's what I found :

No-Execute Memory Protection enables the hardware portion of a feature that protects systems against

malicious code and viruses. When used in combination with an OS that supports this feature, certain

memory is marked as not for executable code. Viruses that attempt to insert and execute code from non-

executable memory locations are intercepted and an exception is raised.
