Physical to Virtual Machines
Posted on 2013-12-04
I have series of Physical to Virtual machines currently sitting on VMware estate. All of them are running 2k3 and were originally Dell PowerEdge systems with a variety of CPU types.
Some systems have come across with 4 CPUs, other have just one 1. Do all of these systems, now they have become virtual, require CPU allocation to be the same ?
i.e 2 Virtual sockets, 1 core per socket for all ?
Please bare in mind these are only running standard windows services, nothing heavy like SQL or Exchange.
