We have two Windows server 2008 R2 Domain controllers and a windows 2003 server that is our primary file server , This 2003 server also has all of our roaming profiles ( Windows 7 ) . We have a Dell Equallogic SAN and all of our servers are virtualized and we run Vmware 4.1 and are planning to move to Vmware 5 shortly.
We have noticed some long login times and sometimes users do not get a roaming prifile.
We were thinking of created a Volume on the SAN, strictly for user profiles in hopes to speed things up.
This is just a thought and we were hoping to get some feedback from the experts .
Will this even work ?
Will something special need to be done for a windows 7 machine to even see the Equallogic Volume ?
