Pagefile on Hyper-V server

Hi,

We are currently running a Hyper-V server on Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacentre with 160GB of RAM and a 67GB HDD
We also have 2 direct attached storage drives via SCSI
W: 2.7TB
Z: 1.8TB

The page file size is set as follows
c: None
W: None
Z: Automatic (160GB)

My questions are
1. Should the pagefile size be 1.5 times that of the RAM (i.e. 240GB insted of 160GB)
2. Should the pagefile reside on a local physical drive as opposed to direct attached storage via SCSI (currently Z drive)
3. Will this have any implications for the Hyper-V server

Best regards
Fiachra

Direct Attach storage is fine for your pagefile since it is running SCSI that is not a problem.

Here is an article to help determine the size of the page file http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;889654
