    How do I add a Cpu to a managed SQL sever in vcenter hosting the vcenter database

    jfrl1 Lurker

      Does anyone know how to add cpus to a sql server which hosts the vcenter database



      vCenter server

      SQL hosting the vCenter database


      If I shut down the SQL server to add cpus - I lose connectivity to the vCenter console so I can only add CPU's via the local esxi console.

      As this server is managed by the vCenter , what will happen if I add CPUS this way? Will this screw things up once the  vCenter comes back online


      I don't have hot add cpu enabled on the server and cannot change this setting until switched off - thus the chicken and egg scenario above.


      Thanks ahead
