Slow disk performance when access virtual Server 2008
Posted on 2009-04-01
I have setup a brand new Dell PowerEdge T100 with 2x250 GB 7200 rpm sata in RAID1 with one month old version of VMware ESXi on. I have installed a Server 2008 as fileserver/dc. I have created a "permanent" virtual disk as second partition in the server to store user data. We are only two users in the network, but when I copy files to the server it's slow. At the maximum I get 1MB/second...I have a virtual terminal server also and it's very fast of course (on the same hard drive) .The clients are Vista computers.
Doesn anyone have any ideas? My old crap server with Server 2003 and an old 40 GB hard drive was much faster...
Thank you in advance,
