BL460c G6, confirm if intel VT and XD are set in the BIOS?

I am looking on enable EVC mode on VMware ESXI 4.1, is there any way to check if the technologies below are enabled in the BIOS, without restarting the server?

 

-BIOS: Verify the BIOS settings for these processors enable Hardware Virtualization (intel VT)
-BIOS: verify execute memory protection, if available.(Intel XD(execute disable))

You can check...

 

esxcfg-info for VT Support, not sure if there is a XD entry.

 

esxcfg-info | grep "HV Support"  will return the HV Support line number:

 

0=not available

1=Might be available

2=Available, but disabled

3=Enabled
