SharePointServices 3.0 Virtual Machine processore reduction

I have a VMWare 4.1 server that I imported an old SharePointServices 3.0 server with.  The OS is Server 2003 R2 SP2.  After the import of the physical machine I realized the virtual server was assigned four processors.  Is it safe for me to just reduce the processors from 4 to 1?  I know it is a best practice to keep one processor unless you have a good reason.  Thanks in advance.

You should be fine, although it may have been better to configure this during the conversion.

I have gone the other way (adding a virtual processor) without issue.

Taking a course from VMWare right now and they warned me about using more than one processor.  This was actually a conversion from a physical machine about year ago.  When I converted it the old machine had multiple processors.  So as far as you know dropping from 4 procs to 1 shouldn't affect SharePoint Services?  Maybe I should run a clone just in case.

Dropping the number of virtual CPU's from 4 to 1 on the Sharepoint Service 3.0 worked perfectly with no instability of the OS.  Thanks
