I am running ESXi 4.0 on a HP DL160 G6 Quad E5504.
In the "Summary" on ESXi it identifies it correctly as HP DL160 G6 with 1 CPU and sees the 4 cores. ESXi therefore sees the hardware fine so I would presume it would use it if specified.
I also have a DL120 G5 with 2 Cores which I used to troubleshoot the problem to see if it was the image that was at fault.
If I image onto the DL120 G5 it sees the 1 CPUs with 2 cores in the image but if I image to the DL160 G6 it only shows one CPU? Why? The operating system runs fine and stable and it sees the 8 Gig of ram etc, just that if I open task manager and go to performance tab...it sees one core?
As another test I tried imaging to the DL160 G6 and only use 2 cores...that only saw one Core too?????????
I am imaging Windows Enterprise Server 2003 so the OS can happily use 4 cores.
As I said already, same image works lovely on 120 G5 and sees dual cores, but can't see 4 cores on DL160 G6
Any assistance greatly welcomed.
