ProLiant DL385 Gen10 plus - PCI spliting / bifurcate

hi everyone.

I am looking at and contemplate a purhcase of these servers and I wonder if are is "PCI split / bifurcate" support from this model(or any HPE servers, I've never owned one).

I'm reading user tech docs but I fail to find clear info on this. Can anybody clarify 100% this server model does support PCIe 'bifurcate' ?

many thanks, Pawel.

Hi Pawel,

Yes, PCIe bifurcation options is available in DL385 Gen10 server, Please follow the below procedure to configure PCIe bifurcation.

Configuring PCIe bifurcation options:

Procedure
1. From the System Utilities screen, select System Configuration > BIOS/Platform Configuration (RBSU) > PCIe
Device Configuration > Advanced PCIe Configuration > PCIe Bifurcation Options.
2. Select the bifurcation option for each PCIe slot.
• Auto
• Bifurcate
• Dual Bifurcate
3. Save your settings.

I'm looking at the RBSU on one of our Gen10 DL385s now. There is no dual bifurcation option, only auto or bifurcate. Is there a way to fix this? Hovering over the bifurcation options mentions dual bifurcation but the dropdowns do not.
