I am trying to get my head around the initial setup for Hyper V.
I have 2 mirrored 148GB SAS drives which I have partitioned using full size and installed Server 2008 STD and instaled the Hper V Service.
4 RAID drives that I intend to mirror Raid 10 and use as DATA drives.
I also want to add 2 more mirrored drives 146GB SAS and install SBS2008 Premium server on this.
The question is with the drives, such as data drive, so I need to partiton this using the Server 2008 Host so that the other VM servers can use it, or is it done in a different way?
Same with the 2 mirrored drives for SBS Premium, do I partition them and when I create the VM browse to that drive letter?
Is this the standard practise or is there another way to do this?
Note the data drive will be viewable mainly from the SBS 2008 Virtual server so do I add this from there instead?
Just need some clarity on this please.
