For vSphere 4.0 Can anyone point me in the right direction for what is storage best practice for VMDK and VMX Configuration files. The main question I have is:
Is it wise to have VMDK and VMX files on a different datastore?
The reason I ask is yesterday a snapshot after replication didn't close properly so datastore ran out of space and VM went into a suspended state. What a nightmare that was since VM was on it's own 50GB datastore so there was no other VM I could migrate off to gain space.
To prevent this happening again, I thought of moving VMX files to a dedicated datastore. Are there any gotcha's to doing this?
