Dual processor with processor allocated to partition

I am looking into installing a ISA server on a dual processor server 2003(ISA licensing is per processor). The sales guy mentioned you can partition the server and allocate a processor to each partition. Then we would only need to buy one license for ISA.

My question is what is required to set up the processor for each partition?

I think its similar to a 1 processor license of Microsoft SQL Server. When you install the license you can just enable it on 1 CPU.
It has nothing todo with partitions it woudn't make any sense, imho your sales person is wrong.
Its an application that runs on 1 CPU or 2 it doesn't matter if its on 2 partitions or not.

We've discussed this types of licenses with microsoft and it was no problem to install a single license on a dual CPU server as long the application only uses 1. This is configured in the application itself (at least its this way with microsoft SQL server). This is configured with a simple checkbox system CPU0 or CPU1.

Hope this helps.
