Proliant DL380 G3 Processor issue

Evening all.

I have a HP Proliant DL380 G3 rack server, of which I know very little about.

I am trying to install a 64bit version of MS Exchange but the server wont let me do it. I have put this down to the DL380 G3 only having a single 32bit processor.

Can anyone advise me as to what my options are? Can I get a 64 bit processor and stick it in?

I only have a 64 bit version of Exchange, if you are wondering!

Thanks very much

Re: Proliant DL380 G3 Processor issue

Sorry, but of you check the server QuickSpecs:, this model uses Intel Xeon processors, the original ones, with 512 KB of L2 cache.
These processors were designed before Intel decided to follow AMD and include x86-64 instructions.
