Short of opening up a server what's the most accurate way to tell the number of processors on a box.  Technolgoies like hyper-threading and quad core seem to distort the reading when running Winmsd.
We just want to know the number of physical processors in a box.
They're a mix of W2k and W2k3 running on various models of HP Proliant

Have you tried tools like CPUID and System Information for Windows?

Intel has provided a software program to do this called cpucount.exe: http://www.intel.com/cd/ids/developer/asmo-na/eng/19287.htm?desturl=http://cache-www.intel.com/cd/00/00/27/66/276610_276610.exe

This will tell you if it is hyperthreading, multicore, or multiprocessor.

You can also see what's in the box from the Systems Management Homepage assuming you have the Proliant support pack installed.
