I have a new Wndows Server 2008 R2 host running Hyper-V. It's a Dell T410 equipped with dual Xeon X5650 Processors and 24 GB of RAM. Each Xeon has 6 processors available for a total of 12 in the server.
The host OS reflects all 12 processors when you open Task Manager. I was under the impression that Hyper-V would let me assign up to 12 processors to my Virtual Server. When I assign processors to the Virtual Server in Hyper-V it gives me a choice of 1 to 4 processors.
Does this mean I can't use anywhere near the 12 processors that I have available?
