VMWare Power Management DL360 G5

VMWare Power Management DL360 G5


we have an DL360G5 with ESX 4.0 in a remote site and i do not succeed in enabling the processor power saving functions. I've read some manuals but they do not work for me.

When i check the vmware configuration->processors page is saying that

Power Management Technology: Not available
Power Management Policy: off

The HP Bios power regulation mode is set to OS Control.

When i try to change the Configuration->adv. Settings->Power.CpuPolicy value to "dynamic" i get the error "The value entered is not valid".

Anyone an idea whats wrong?

Thank you!

I am afraid G5 generation doesn't support vmware power management technology.
Do you have any newer server to do small tests?
