Memory issue with HP ProLiant DL385 G6 2U and Debian 10

Hello,

I have a HP ProLiant DL385 G6 2U with 32Gb of memory. I can see them on iLO and bios but on debian 10 I only see 16Gb.

How can I solve this ? What do I have to check to find what is the issue.

Does Debian 10 and a G6 proliant isn't compatible ?

Thank you.

Regards,

Hello,

 

Which VMware version you have tried?

This is very older server.

I think this is supported VMware 5x or you can try 6x
