Re: Adding 2nd CPU - Nt4.0

Do this is very easy.First of all, you backup you data which you think it is very important.and you shutdown you server ,unplug power cord ,install CPU correctly.
ok, you boot you server and logou nt4 with administrator. Can you know SmartStart CD ? yes insert smartstart cd and run drive:\cpqsupsw\ntssd\setup.exe ,will see a screen prompt you to upgrade driver
The first item you need update, the others do not need. reboot the server you can use SMP.
