Since its been outstanding as an issue for many years I'm not expecting it to be suddenly fixed, but surely someone needs to start thinking about it. In the meantime, can anyone tell me if a Windows Virtual Machine (VmWare, VirtualBox, etc) configured to have only 1 CPU but running on a multiple CPU machine will be subject to the same windows bug and manager corruption issue?
There are no known current issues with multiprocessor boxes under any recent version of Windows since Windows 2000. Under much older versions of Windows such as Windows NT, repository corruption was observed on multiprocessor machines. It was never reproducible or diagnosed, but speculation at the time was that the problem was a file sharing bug in Windows itself (that has likely been long since corrected). As far as we know, no fix is necessary under any recent version of Windows.
As long as you us the -mp switch, you should not have any problem using EMSRV under any recent version of Windows. We have had no reports of manager corruption in the past 5 years or more. Many customers are running with the -mp override.
