I'm building a new Exchange 2010 in hyper-v and need some guidance.
Host OS is Server 2012 standard with:
12 cores\48GB Ram
Bare metal OS C:120GB
Drive for VM's D: 250GB
Data drive G: 1.6 T
VM is set up as 2008 r2 but Exchange 2010 is not yet installed. Drives (8x500GB sata) are RAID 10.
The question I have is this: At this point the VM is created. I also created a data drive for the mailboxes which is around 1.2 T on the physical G: drive. I plan on using the remainder of the space on G:\ for a drive for transaction log files. ~130GB.
The drive from the host OS will show that G:\ is completely out of space. Any ideas if this will impact performance or is this an acceptable deployment plan? Now is the time to adjust it as I am still in planning and early deployment. (headache Exchange 2003 to 2010 coming next) I'd like to do this right.
