I'm going to be building out 2 Windows 2003 domain controllers for a remote office. The servers are 1U's with mirrored hard drives. Is there a "preferred" way to partition the drive when only one drive is used (other drive for parity)? I'm not sure if I should just make the drive one big C: partition or if I should make a C: and D:. The servers will not be used for anything other than Active Directory. I was thinking about putting the O.S. on the C: partition and the logs on a D: partition. Is that even worth while since the partitions are on the same drive? Am I better off just making the entire drive one C: partition?
Thanks for the assistance!
