Hello

We have a brand new HP DL585 which has installed 2 Opteron 875 processors, upgradable to 4 processors.

Which Windows OS should be installed on that server? HP do not recommend any specific Windows 2003 server version and MS only says that an unreleased Windows 2003 Stanrdard Version 64 Bits R2 has the capability to use the full power of the Opteron dual core 64 bits.

Any advice would be higly appreciated.

Thanks

I would go with the Windows 2003 Enterprise Server 2003 64 bit version then upgrade after the official release comes out.

I have it running on a system with dual Opteron 246 processors.

I agree, as I recall you should double check the maxium amount of CPU's it supports (sockets not cores)

Becasue I think some version only support 2 sockets, and you might have to get the enterprise level for support of 4 sockets/cpu packages
