    Has it really got 2 or 4 physical processors. Xeon's etc. appear as two each to the OS for instance as you suggested.

    SBS 2003 only supports two physical CPU's :

    Then presumably two are simply being ignored. I imagine if you fire up peformance monitor and look at the instances of counters available under processor or just look in Task manager you will se the reduced no. of processors too.

    WINMSD and Properties of My Computer (System control panel applet) should report what Windows thinks it has too.

    system control panel says it has 4. so am i to assume that sbs just can see 4?
