Is my Server 64 Bit Compatible?

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

While doing some recent beta testing (shhh), I realized that my lab is NOT 64 bit compatible.  :( I will have to do some searching around to find a suitable 64 bit lab that will fit into my budget (both initial and Electricity!). 

A quick and dirty way to check if your current ESX setup is 64 bit compatible is to putty in and run ‘cat /procs/cpuinfo'.  Look for the LM flag to determine if you have 64 Bit extensions. (Long Mode)
