Thread-topic: Changing how CPUS are presented to windows.
User-agent: Microsoft-MacOutlook/
Is there a way to change how CPU's are presented to Windows VM's? Example if you have a quad core cpu server that is 8 virtual cpus, if you assign all 8 virtual cpus to a single windows server it is viewed as 8 individual processors. Is there any way to have windows see it as 4 and not 8? The reason why is for SQL licensing. I am using open xen cloud.
