I'm in the process of setting up a hyper-v server that will host 2 machines. One will be a exchange 2007 box for a 30 user workgroup and the other will be an active directory box. I have a dell poweredge r710 that has 5 x 73 gb hdd's and 3 146 gb hdd's.
I've never set up an actual virtualized box before so I want to make sure I have my stuff straight before I proceed. I plan on using server 2008 r2 with the latest version of hyper-v as the base OS. Will hyper-v allow me to install a VM onto a specified raid array? I'd like to have 2 73 gb drives for the base OS, 3 73 gb drives for the ad box, and the 3 146 gb drives for exchange.
Or am I completely off base here?
