hyperthreading in DL380 G5 server??

How do I identify what Xeon processor I have in my DL380??

We bought it this April 2007, I'd like to find out if/how I can enable hyperthreading in it.

It is a Xeon processor, I can't recall if it is a 5100-series or not.

I could not find anything in the BIOS about hyperthreading, and VMware is telling me that hyperthreading is enabled but not active and that I have to configure the BIOS...

Also see here:

Can I turn on hyperthreading or not in my DL380??

Thank you, TOM

I found this HP link about hyperthreading, but it does not mention DL380 G5 servers, so my question about hypethreading remains unanswered.

Thank you, Tom

Intel Xeon 51xx and 53xx series processors do not support hyperthreading. Xeon 50xx do.
