VMWare, assigning cores

I have a machine with multiple lpars with only 1 core assigned to each

From the vSphere client, I see that the host reports the following

Processor Sockets:    2
Processor Cores per   Socket
Logical Processors:   24
Hyperthreading:       Enabled

Open in new window


I have 12 physical cores

I want to assign 6 physical cores to one of the LPARs

When I set the cores to the LPAR I have the following Options

Number of Sockets:              1
Number of Cores per Sockets:    1

Open in new window


So to assign six physical cores to one of the LPARs, which of these configurations do I perform:

First Configuration

Number of Sockets:              1
Number of Cores per Sockets:    6

Open in new window


Second Configuration

Number of Sockets:              1
Number of Cores per Sockets:    12

Open in new window


Thanks
