Hi,

I have a SQL server that the hardware is failing. As a solution we restored the image of the server on a multicore more less new server. The problem is that SQL 2000 cannot be started if number of CPUs is not in power of 2. I found this article (http://bit.ly/1l9BS9t) that helped me with a nice trick to load SQL just fine but the reporting service is having the same issue.

So I am looking for a solution on how to load the Reportin Services on this new hardware. Here is the log of the Report Server Service.

I was able to solve the issue my selecting the amount of cores on the server using the HP ROM based utilities. Instead of using all 12 cores from each CPU (a total of 24), I downgraded to 8 per CPU for a total of 16. Since it is a power of 2 problem solved. Thanks!
