Vantage will recognize multi-processors system, including dual-core
and quad-core and it does not affect the Vantage Licensing at all. I
am running Vantage 8.03.404 on a Dell 1900 with 2 3.0GHz Quad-core
processors. We are still in the testing stages of implementation. We
currently run our Vantage 6.1 production on a Dell 2500 dual-
processor.

Hope this helps.

For you IT pro's, I'm buying a new Dell Poweredge 1900 server for Vantage,
and Dell is offering a free upgrade to a 2nd processor. An IT consultant
our company uses is suggesting that a 2nd processor may require special
licensing for dual processors? Is that a really a concern for running
Vantage? What kind of applications would require special licensing for dual
processors?

Are you running Vantage on a Progress or SQL database? SQL can either be
licensed per user or by processor. If licensed by processor, you can
have unlimited usersconnecting, but you are required to license both
processors, not just one. Hope this helps...

I believe these are also "physical CPUs" and not total of the cores. When we put in the Dual Quadcore system we were told the 2 CPU licenses for Microsoft were for the two physical CPU chips and not the 8 processor cores.

Also,
You will often seen per-processor licensing on distributed solutions.
But I really do not think this is an issue for concern here.
In Vantage 8, I know in MRP processing, there is a user-adjustable field for the number of processors that can be used to run the MRP processes. I was told by development last year at Perspectives that this was to be used with multi-processor systems and that someone with multiple processors would benefit from chaning the default value from 1 to 2. I have no idea if that applies to cores or unique processors.

No concern, Vantage will run just fine. I would question the 1900
though. You don't get as much flexibility for redundancy - look into a
PowerEdge 2900. Keep in mind you will be running your company on this
application so don't skimp on the hardware.
