I am learning on VMWare but would like to ask some questions in regards to configuring VM's.
I have a new Dell R720 Server, it has 2 x 6 Core CPU's (12 cores @ 1.999Ghz each), 32GB Memory and 600GB (RAID10) SAS Storage, quite high specs. I also purchased VMWare Essentials Kit.
I am wanting to setup at least 4 x Windows Server 2008 R2 VM's on this host. One of these will be for vCenter only as i heard some ports it uses conflicts with Active Directory.
Can someone advise what sort of resources i should allocate in VMWare to these 4 x VM's? In particular memory and cpu allocations and limits plus any other non obvious settings that experts here may of found.
Any help extremely appreciated.
