Hi Experts,

I am about to purchase and setup a SBS 2003. Just wondering if there is any problems with starting off with 1 processor (on a dual capable board) and then adding a second processor down the track if need be? In other words, SBS runs for 6 months with 1 processor and then wakes up one morning with 2, would it have any problems? Or am i better spending the extra $$$ now and starting with 2? btw the processors will probably be Intel 5130's (although i'm open to suggestions on that too).

Thanks all
Greg

The Xeon's are hyperthreaded and SBS will probably load the SMP functionality by default.  However, even if it doesn't, adding a second CPU should not be a problem; simply updating the CPU drivers.
