PowerTip: Use PowerShell to Add Processors to Virtual Machine

Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to add processors to a virtual machine running on Hyper-V.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I easily add processors to my virtual machine?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Set-VMProcessor cmdlet:

    SET-VMProcessor -VMname “My Virtual Machine” -count 2   

This enables the virtual machine called “My Virtual Machine” with two (2) CPUs (presuming the computer is already shut down and you have two processors to work with).
