I am building a Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V Server and am seeking advise for how best to create my volumes.
4x1GB SATA drives in a RAID6 on PERC H700.
I will making 2 Logical Disks, the first for Windows 2008, the second for the Virtual Machines.
I accepted all defaults creating the first volume and installing Windows 2008. For the second Logical Disk I need help choosing Stripe Stipe Element Size and NTFS Allocation Unit Size to offer best performance for large files, VHDs and Backup Files.
Thanks for all your help on this one!
