  • Web Edition, max cpus?

    I bought a Sun x4100 server a year or so ago. It came pre-loaded with Web edition. I just added a 2nd cpu to the server. It is showing up in the device manager, but in the task manager it is not. I cannot set the affinity on the process, so it looks like the OS is not supporting the 2nd cpu. Is there a 1 cpu edition of Web Edition?

    Odd...
    On SUN's site is stated that it supports only 2003 Standard and Enterprise editions...

      I believe Web edition supports 2 CPUs:

      But, since you upgraded from 1 CPU to 2, did you update to a multiprocessor HAL? If not, you will not get 2 CPUs detected

          Guys, I have to say that I am getting more and more confused. First thing I did was to check the editions comparison table from Microsoft.
          In Hardware Specifications part it is stated that only 2-way symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) support is supported by Web Edition (in 32bit version. OP doesn't say what OS version it is in use)
          I checked then what does this mean, and found another article, that states that only AMD processors that support 2-way SMP are AMD Athlon MP, Socketed Athlons and Duron. No word about Opteron200, the CPU that comes with the SUN x4100.
          So, the question is: what do I miss here?

          Added: well, I found an SMP capable processors list in Wikipedia, but when went further about Opteron, couldn't understand exactly if they are 2-way or more... And no word about Opteron200 model....

            It looks like the 200 series is SMP capable. Mine is a 248. Is there any possibility that I might just have a 1 cpu version of web edition? It seems strange that they would recognize both in the device manager and run the multiprocessor kernel though. HMMM

              What OS are you using? 32bit or 64bit?
              Notice that the 32bit version is only 2-way SMP capable (what the heck is that?!?). So, is your CPU OK with that?

                32bit, 2003 Web Edition SP2

                there is only two cpu's, so it should work right?

                  I have no idea, dude... I'm trying to understand this issue, so far without any luck...
