Hyper V drive configuration
Posted on 2008-10-31
I am going to be setting up a Windows 2008 server with hyper V, replacing some current servers. Thsi is a small shop with 30 users. I want to know if the folowing makes sense.
Host OS with be 2008, and will be AD, DHCP and DNS, and backup Exec, about 30 BG partition.
1 VM for Exchagne 2007
1 VM for MOSS 2007
1 VM for file sharing and other 32 bit apps (Windows 2003 server)
My question is, I am putting in 6 x 450 GB 15k drives. Should I make 1 array with all drives, then partition it up for a seperate partition for each VM? What is the best way to use the drives?
