Proliant ML350 G3 - 64 bits upgrade?

Hi everyone,

We have a Proliant ML350 G3 which is working fine.

We would like to check if it would be possible to install VMWare ESX on it. VMWare ESX supports only 64 bits processors. Our ML350 G3 has two 32 bits processors.

Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade some parts (motherboard, processor, etc) to enable 54 bits processing?

Thanks !

I'm sorry! I would like to enable *64* bits processing! Not 54 bits! ;)

Hello,
my sugestion is to stay with VMware ESX 3.5 (3.5 update 5 latest?). It does not require 64bit hardware and it should be more than suitable for your needs on such "older" server.

From what I see VMware is not supported on Ml350 G3 Quick specs

Also ML350 G3 is not listed under virtualization under os matrix
