You mean you want that domU to have 32 vCPUs? Can I ask you from where
this requirement comes from?

Mmm... nice setup! :-P

Do you mind sending here the output of the following commands, to help
us picture the situation better?

~# xl info -n
~# xl list -n
~# xl vcpu-list

If possible, run the following two too:

~# xl debug-key u
~# xl dmesg > xl-dmesg.log

And attach the xl-dmesg.log file.

Of course, do all the above with all your domains up and running, and
after the re-weighting of the Win server.

You mean apps inside the Win server with 32 vCPUs or in general?
