By using CPU affinity, you can assign a virtual machine to a specific processor. This way, you can assign a virtual machine only to a particular available processor in multiprocessor systems.
Before you begin
Power off the virtual machine.
- Right-click the virtual machine in the VMware Host Client inventory and select Edit settings.
- Under Virtual Hardware, expand CPU.
- Under Scheduling Affinity, select physical processor affinity for the virtual machine.
Use a hyphen to indicate ranges and a comma to separate values.
For example, 0, 2, 4-7 would indicate processors 0, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7.
- Click Save to apply your changes.
