I have a DL380 G7 server, with dual processors and 8 x 146 GB 15k drives. The box has 32 GB of ram.
I'm looking to use this to host an Exchange 2010 server as well as some other virtual guests but not sure the best approach to take. I don't know how many other guests will be on the box, but I'd say 5 beyond exchange of the lighter capacity like a DC.
I'm always concerned about performance and find it harder now with virtualization to find solid information on what will work. The location has about 100 users.
Just looking for feedback on how others would setup a server with these requirements.
I'm assuming you will not be using shared storage. Two things to watch out for with Exchange: 1. Make sure that the logical disk is aligned properly. You can find more information on disk alignment here
