In virtual machine - in virtual management console (depend on virtualisation platform) and also for physical number of processors in host machine.
In virtual machine also in Computer management console and Device manager/Processors

you can also write the VBScript to do it in Windows virtual servers. Output can be excel or csv file.
What virtual environment are you using ?

Here you can find proper keys.
strComputer = "localhost"
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
Set colCSes = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem")

For Each objCS In colCSes
  WScript.Echo "Computer Name: " & objCS.Name
  WScript.Echo "System Type: " & objCS.SystemType
  WScript.Echo "Number Of Physical Processors: " & objCS.NumberOfProcessors
  WScript.Echo "Number of Logical Processors: " & objCS.NumberofLogicalProcessors
Next

- install on servers with Windows 2003 servers MS hotfix (in my previous comment)
- on your computer download psexec utility from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx
- create file listserrvers.txt with names of your servers each on one line
- create procinfo.cmd
cscript /nologo \\fileserver\share\RetrieveProcInfo.vbs >> \\fileserver\share\procreport.csv
- create RetrieveProcInfo.vbs and copy to the fileserver path
On  error resume next
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
Set colCSes = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem")
For Each objCS In colCSes
 rem  Values are: Computer Name;Number Of Physical Processors;Number of Logical Processors
Wscript.Echo objCS.Name & ";" & objCS.NumberOfProcessors & ";" & objCS.NumberofLogicalProcessors
Next

LAST execute:
psexec @listservers.txt -c -u yourdomainname\adminaccountname procinfo.cmd
