Thank You.  The thread seems incomplete but perhaps that's because it's a problem yet to be resolved?  (There are requests for the documentation and examples that haven't been answered and are relevant to my original question.)

I am trying to figure out how to set the number of CPUs per socket in my
VMs.  My install of Win2003Server Enterprise should support at least 16
CPUs, but it sees only 8.  I was told this is because by default, Xen 3
gives the guest OS vcpus at 1 per socket and W2k3E supports "8 sockets."
How can I set Xen to give more than one CPU per socket?  I have 32 CPUs
available (8 quad-core opterons).

See the thread titled "Windows and Multiple CPUS?", which was started
on the 19th of September:
