I am standing up a 2008 R2 domain controller, This DC will hold all FSMO roles, I have a secondary DC that will remain physical.

I want to seperate the SYSVOL and the LOGS on different disk spindles per Microsoft best preactices.

Is it ok to Store each parition in a different datastore.  EMC CX-4 FiberChannel

There's no harm in storing different partitions (different virtual disks) on different datastores.

Are the datastores on the same set of spindles on the SAN?

okay, so you will see the performance benefit.

you would create two virtual disks, and assign each virtual disk to separate datastores.

just make sure you allocate large enough virtual disks, datastores to accomodate growth.
