VMWare ESXi 5.1 Running W2008r2 RDP and a Second DC
Posted on 2013-01-16
Looking for some advice.
I'm brand new to ESXi and don't know how to allocate the resources for processors, memory etc.
I have a requirement for two new servers in my small Windows 2003 domain.
We need a second domain controller ( Windows 2008r2) and a Windows 2008r2 Remote desktop server (Terminal Server) we estimate around 20 remote users at any one time.
For hardware we have a spare HP PRoliant DL360 g7, please see below hardware :
2 x E5606 @ 2.13Ghz Intel Xeon
1 x Raid 5 Array with spare drive:800gb
So far I have installed the HP version of the ESXi 5.1, this includes the HP agents.
IS there anyone that can recommend how i should configure the processors and memory for best performance for these two new servers. At the same time if there's anything special that i should also be doing. I've carried out so much research and now need some solid advice from some experiences users.
If there's any thing else that you think i need to look at please shout.
Thanks in advance.
