[THIN] Re: Hyper-Threading (again!)

I have just purchased a new HP Proliant ML370 2x1.4Ghz Xeon running =
W2KSP2 for my second Citrix server, and this is showing four processors =
in task manager.

My other Citrix server (a Compaq Proliant ML570 2x1.0Ghz Xeon also =
running W2KSP2) is (only) showing two processors in task manager.

The server is not live yet...my question is, is having this =
hyper-threading on for a Citrix server a good thing or a bad thing?  If =
it is recommended to switch it off how do I do that?

(Server will have about 15-20 users on it at any one time running word, =
excel, outlook and a few custom apps..and...all users will be running an =
access front-end/sql back-end application) on it).

Thanks,

Steve

I have Windows 2000 server running and hyper threading seems to be just =

fine.

Whether or not I am getting any kind of performance boost from it is a =
=3D
whole other debate but I have two physical processors in the machine and =

when I look at task manager, I see four.

        Our DBA is under the impression that Windows 2000 Server does NOT
support
        hyper-threading, but Advanced Server does. Is there any validity to
this? The
        only thing I see on Microsofts site deals with Windows XP. Any
ideas?
