Windows 2003 SBS Says I have more than two processors, but I only have two.
Posted on 2006-03-22
Today I installed Windows 2003 SBS on a Dell Poweredge 2650 server with two Xeon 3 gHz processors. The SBS installation program issues a warning:
This computer has more than two processors. It goes on to warn that it will not use more than two processors.
According to the BIOS setup (and to my physical inspection) the server has only two processors.
This is the second Dell Poweredge on which I've observed this problem.
(1) Why does SBS see more than two processors when there are, in fact, only two?
(2) Will it use both processors?
