We have a SQL cluster and to comply with licensing we either disabled in the BIOS or physcially removed CPUs. Im not sure which yet. In either case can it kill the cluster or create any issues, to take a SQL cluster and just either re-add CPUs when it is down or re-enabled a CPU in the BIOS?

To perform this process on a 2 node SQL cluster is there any special steps or things to make sure of or watch out for? Whats the best way to do this if possible?
