Have a Dell Power Edge 4600 server running Windows Server 2003.  It's primary role is that of a backend Exchange 2003 server.  It also acts as a Print Server.  Will be adding a second Xeon Processor this weekend.  

Are there any issues or tweaking I will have to do to make Exchange work and/or work better with two processors?

Thanks.

There is nothing required from Exchange side. still, you can have a look at the following link for Exchange 2003.

Thanks for the Links.  Didn't fully answer my question, but I appreciate the effort.  Added the second processor and it went smooth as could be.  Exchange didn't even hiccup and is running faster than ever.  No teaks required on my part.
