Hi, We are about to increase the number of processor on a Virtual Machine from 1 to 2 for one of our clients, will this affect the SQL Server 2005 which installed on the Virtual Machine, just wondering if are any issues to look out for, and if anyone has done this before? Thanks.

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

It should be fine. Add the second vCPU. You’ll probably need to reboot the guest a few times to get Windows working with both vCPUs. Once Windows is working with both of them correctly SQL will work with them both as well. Nothing will need to be done to make SQL use both CPUs.

    Thanks for the reply, I think they are using a one processor licensing for the SQL Server 2005, and want us to help them purchase an additional processor license for that SQL Server, this is quite new to me but how do one purchase an additional processor license for that SQL Server 2005. Thanks in advance.

    Just about any VAR can sell you the license. Who ever the server was purchased through can do so as well.
