Some consideration when changing CPU core count or memory with DxEnterprise.
When changing the number of cores or memory allocation to a physical or virtual node, you can ensure that allocation policies and license count is reflected properly by re-activating each node.
To do so, you can navigate to the Tools menu item in DxEnterprise or DxAdmin, select Cluster License Manager, then select Activate for any node with changes in effect.
If you hot-add CPU cores or memory and would like to ensure changes are reflected by DxEnterprise, you can follow the procedure below:
- Freeze the node you wish to update
- Restart the DxLMonitor service via the Services MMC snap-in or via net/sc
- Unfreeze the node
- Re-activate the node as per above
You can check your currently-used core count via your license page at https://clients.dh2i.com.
