  ** 1 physical server
  ** 2 physical CPUs
  ** 8 cores / CPU
  ** Hypertread
  ** 32 virtual CPUs

Currently I have "Dynamic Memory"
checked on all my Windows 2012 R2
Gen1 HyperVs which is good, but I also
want to do dynamic vcpu provisioning.

 1. Is there a way to setup
    dynamic vcpu provisioning ?
      ** Example
           ** VM #1 needs all the CPUs
              at midnight to do processing
           ** VM #2 needs all the CPUs
              at daytime to do processing

 2. If so, is anyone using this
    dynamic vcpu provisioning feature ?
