I currently have a Windows 2000 Server with one processor, I intend to install a second processor into the server.  Will I need to re-install the O/S again in order to accomondate the second processor?  I am also running SQL Server 2000 - 1 Processor Edition on the current server, I will purchase a second license for the second processor, will I need to reconfigure SQL Server in any way?

Thanks

No you wont need to reinstall the OS.

Just go into the Device Manger and under system you change it there.  I'll dig out a link for you.

No idea about SQL.

Thanks for the links and advice.  But what about SQL Server 2000?  Would it just function as normal as the O/S manages instructions to the processors?  I'm assumming that that would be the case, just trying to determine whether any extra work is required.

I'm not sure. you can assign it to a specific cpu but i presume it would just carry on as normal anyway.

have a skim though MS KB to see if anything pops up.

hhp001 sorry to jump in

beware - check the licencing on your SQL2000 depending on your licensing, it is sometimes licenced "per processor" you might be in-advertantly breaking the law (check with your software vendor to make sure)
