Sun 420 slugish after removing 2 CPUs


We want to run a 420 with the 4 GB but with only 2 CPUs.  We are running: SunOS qadb02 5.8 Generic_108528-21 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-80.

When we boot the system up, we are having very sluggish performance.  Do we need to do something additional to re-config the OS?  Will sys-unconfig work?  I'm guessing that the OS still thinks there are 4 CPUs there, no?

Thanks for any help!

My guess was right, we reset the OS config manually and it came up happily.  Good suggestion for investigation tho, I'll give you the points in good will. :-)
