Hi All,

We have 2 identical sql servers both sitting on VMs
But recently when i did a right click (property) over the server name in SSMS the Processors fields displayed different values for each. For 1 it displayed 4 and for other it displayed 6. Other field like Memory etc are in sink.This seems to be wrong since these are supposed to be identical. Am i right or these values can be rubbish??

As far as I know, it is reliable. You can also query in T-SQL or look in control panel to confirm. T-SQL would be:
SELECT cpu_count  FROM sys.dm_os_sys_info
