I am setting up an SBS 2008 premium server with 24GB ram.
I will setup a host 2008 server, then SBS2008 virtualised and 2008 STD server virtualised.
I have 2 X 146GB SAS drives (for OS) and 4 X 500GB drives. (for data)
I was considering installing the host on the mirrored 146GB drives, but should I have the 2 other OS on seperate drives to the host? what size would you suggest for partitioning for the host SBS premium and 2008 STD. Is this HDD size too small? should I look at another mirrored 148GB SAS for SBS server?
I noticed with my test install I am able to partition the SAS drive to 148GB and install 2003 server. Then I was able to create another 2 virtual servers on that same partition. Is this how its supposed to work, or should I setup a 10GB partition for the host and leave the rest unpartitioned?
Bit confused on best way to do this. thanks!
