Windows 2008 with RDM in ESXi 4.1 running exchange 2007 slow to copy 1 gig file to same drive
We have a windows 2008 sp2 server with Exchange 2007 installed with the datastore on a RDM attached directly within Vmware.
Server runs fine but we have had issues with slow backups. After looking into it we found that copying large files onto the same drive i.e. C:\ the file copy would take a very long time the first time (over 5 minutes for a 1 gig file ) after that it would be okay.
