hi everyone,

i have an issue with which i have not come across until now. i have a physical blade server with 4 quad core CPUs on it. windows server 2003 R2 enterprise edition is installed. as application there is Oracle Database 10g Enterprise edition running.
question is: how can i turn off/disable 2 CPUs on the server? i want only 2 CPUs to run. without any thinking i can say that i can remove these 2 CPUs but is there any other way to do that?
