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? Cheers
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.

Per Processor. How do I reset it. He have licenses for each processor.
In Windows 2000, Settings, Administrative tools, licensing. HTH Luis Martin
