Usually a Dell house but just bought two of the above, installed vSphere 5.1 and added to cluster. Cannot vmotion vm's as VMware error says new Server is not compatible to this EVC mode - doesn't support AES-NI and PCLMULQDQ. No option to enable in the stock bios but several blogs say available in latest bios.
Have downloaded the latest bios.exe to USB but how do I install it?
Tried the F10 smart provisioning but when clicking on "firmware update" errors out on cannot read data. Cannot find anything on how to do it either. A bit of a stupid question I know but can you point me in the right direction please.

please read this VMware KB:
It seem to me you other Dell server bios setting has this features enabled. Check this, consider lowering EVC mode to lower level. (known Dell and Cisco feature)
but anyway to your original question, if you still need to update your brand new dl380p gen8, use HP Service Pack for proliant -
- bootable dvd which will take care you firmware updates. But - as written above - I doubt you will find your setting anyway as it is limited to some vendors.
