Wonder if anyone can help.
I am new to vmware and have downloaded ESXi 4.1 free Hypervisor.
I have a Dell R710, 24GB RAM, 300GB SAS RAID 5, 4 NICs cards available.
I have installed the Hypervisor on NIC one.
I have created two Virtual VMs, each with 12GB RAM, one VM is SBS2008 and the other is Win 2008 configure as a TS.
Everything seems to be working fine except I feel the speed when I copy data between the two VMs is VERY slow.
My question is:
Since I have 3 spare network cards available, is there anything I can do to increase the Network speed?
Can anyone suggest best pratices for configuring ESXi 4.1 NICs.
