I have a wierd situation with our PowerEdge 6600, we upgraded the OS to Windows Server 2003 and now the 4 xeons show up as 8, even though these peticular processors were not supposed to have HT yet. Now I may be wrong in this assumption but it seems that HT was enabled but Intel never marketed these as HT enabled procs until later? Anyways this server runs a 4gb SQL database and obviously it's trying to use 4 real proccessors and 4 logical ones, this isnt really what I want...and since there is no way to turn off HT in the bios (because it doesnt exist) I cant find any other way to disable it. Whats funny is, if im correct, Windows Server 2003 standard only supports 4 processors anyways..so how is this happening and what can I do to disable it?
Thanks for any help
