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.

I gues you are not using cpu and vcpus in you domu config file, like this:

vcpus       = '4'
cpus        = '1-7'

You can also play with xm vcpu-set and xm vcpu-pin.
