Time to revisit: BL460c G7 - how do you disable cores?

Keith needed to know:

I know this question has been and answered before so I apologize for asking again.

 

Customer has BL460c G7 with (2) L5640 processors.  They use an application which licenses per core (not socket) and they want to run 8 cores.  Is it possible to disable 4 cores (say 2 per processor) to leave 8 active cores?  If so, how?  Through BIOS?  If it’s not possible, can they disable a processor?

Have you done this and it works well for you? Let us know how you use licensing and the ability to turn CPU cores on/off.
