Director and multicore

Jump to solution

Hi all,

a client is asking us to deploy a Windows 2008. He needs 8 CPU (max supported by win2k8) but multicores, the only way to have a physical-like 8CPU-quad cores server .

I see that I can perform this action from vCenter, but nothing similar in vCloud Director (clients doesn't have access to vCenter).

Since is strongly not advisable to make changes in a Vcenter managed by vCD, is there any other solution to reach this goal?

Thank you very much!

Raf

In the current versions of vCloud Director, you cannot control the cores per processor socket ratio.  At this time, I don't think there would be an alternative.

We are looking at this for future versions tho, to allow you to choose 8 vCPU @ 4core/2socket.

Thank you. In the while I gave him a Win2K8 Datacenter vers, that supports up to 64 CPU...

Thanks a lot!

Has this now been addressed in 5.5??

I did manage to achieve it in 5.1 by manually adjusting the VM within vSphere once created in VCD but it really doesnt like it and boot up is flaky.

Yes, 5.5 allows for configured sockets and core count.
