Active Directory setup - Best Location for DB, Log and SYSVOL
Posted on 2011-09-21
I'm setting up a Windows 2008 server. Not much experience and someone else will be checking what I do, but I wanted to try and get it right before.
I'm setting up AD DS, and I'm on the screen where it asks for "Location for Database, Log Files and SYSVOL".
I have read the guide but I just wanted the direct opinion for my circumstance.
This will be the only server in the network.
C Drive- RAID1 300GB total
D Drive = RAID 5 = 5 1.6TB total available.
Server has defaulted the following locations:
Log Files Folder:
But also recommends that the database and log files are on separate volumes. I've been reading the help guide but am a bit confused as to what I should do.
In my scenario, what is recommended.
Many thanks in advance
