Hi,

We have a Sun V440 server running Solaris 9/05 with 4 CPUs.  However this server is now used as a test server and we would like to disable 2 of the CPUs.  I know we were able to do this on an old E10K we had but can't find any info on doing this with the V440 and Solaris 9.

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Don't know if a v440 supports that without checking the manual but, you could just create a processor set with 2 cpu's.
