Correct disk setting on vm under vmware server for running windows guest and sql 2000 server
Posted on 2009-04-07
I am running VMWare Server on a Ubuntu 8.10 server.
I have 2 VM's running - both windows 2003 servers.
The servers have 2 virtual disks each configured as C and D.
I have been setting the virtual disk write cache settings to 'optimize for performance.'
I am now installing SQL 2000 onto one of the VM's
Is it wise I set the disk(s) involved with database and logs to 'Optimize for Safety' rather than 'Optimize for performance' ?
