Best place to place SBS 2008 page file? What size should it be?
Posted on 2009-04-28
I would like to move the page file from the C: drive of our SBS 2008 server. But, I'm not sure of the best place to move it to. In Harry B's SBS 2008 Blueprint Book, on page 5-14, he recommends leaving 400 MB on the C: partition. I have no issue with that, but I want to know where I should put the other page file, given our configuration:
2 RAIDS - RAID 1 has C: and other E: (245GB) partition. RAID 5 (Data) has one partition (F:) of 2.72TB. Server has 16GB physical memory.
So, should I move the page file to the other RAID (F:) or place it on the E: partition on the RAID 1? How large should I make the swap file in the new location?
