    I upgraded our server to 2 processors. SQL Server was originally installed to run under 1 processor. In the properties tab it still reads 1 processor. How can I make it read 2 processors?

    what type of server is it? On some servers you also need to run an upgrade on the driver software, since the hal is different for a uni-processor versus a multi-processor box. You'd have to check with the hardware vendor on what is required...

    are both processors showing up in Perfmon/task manager?

    If task manager see two processor, then try to reinstall last SP.

    The processor is showing under perfmon. I think when SQL Server was installed it was under 1 processor license.

    That could be the razon. Check if was per processor or WS.
