This is my first time setting up a virtual enviorment and have a few questions.
I am going to start out with Windows Server 2012 Standard
Dell PowerEdge 720xd
C:\Drive = 1.1TB Total in Raid 10 (no other drives or partitions)
Going to have 4 VMs (DC, File Server, Print Server, Time Clock Server)
Small company 50 computers total
Should i shrink the C:\drive down to lets say 100GB and use the rest for a D:\drive. Then put all my VMs on the D:\drive? They are just VHDX files correct.
Do i need a seperate partition for each VM "VHDX File"? If so i dont think i could even do that because i would need a total of 5 partitions and can only do 4 correct.
What is the best practice for this. I dont want to guess my way through it and be wrong or too slow.
Thanks for any help.
