I have some V600's and i am using 4 cores and it says 6 are available.


I know i can shutdown and add the other 2 cores to the VM.


My question is will they get used by the scanning engine and give me more threads to process more mail ???



The reason i ask is i have talked to various people and some say yes just add them, and some say you need to check the licensing to see if the cores will be used when added.


I also heard the way the servers are sold now, all cores are available, but i got mine over 3 years ago, so not sure if the situation is different for me.


If anyone has done this or has an opinion I would like to hear it.

Thank you for your time.
