SQL Server 2005
Hi All, We are about to add an additional processor to one of our SQL Server 2005, just wondering if there are any downside to doing this and if this a low risk task to do, i.e. we won't encounter any problem after doing this? Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No, there shouldn’t be any problems. Just don’t forget to get a new CPU license if needed.

    If you are going from a single CPU to multiple CPU's you should consider what parallelism will do to your existing queries. There is an excellent article on the topic here: http://sqlserverpedia.com/blog/sql-server-bloggers/more-parallelism/
