I chose this site because it not only saves my job, but my company’s data. I tried following the steps outlined by Microsoft in upgrading my servers from uniprocessor to multiprocessors using the uptomp.exe utility on the resource kit. After running the utility, my servers failed to reboot. I performed some searches and found this site that explained to me in detail the files that are changed and how to correct the issue so that my servers will reboot. This site is a must review before performing a multiprocessor upgrade.
