server 2008 hyperv
Posted on 2013-05-23
This is for my home dev box. I have hyper-v 2008 running hosting another 2008 vm with visual stuido etc. I remote into it to do dev work. It is server because I do a lot of SharePoint development. So the main box is primarily hosting the vm.
I feel like my vm should work better. I can't have too many visual studio instances open, and I also disabled resharper. At work, I have tons of windows open and have no issues at all. I am not sure the speed at work, but I have 8GB ram on the metal. I realize that is a big difference, but I would think I should have plenty of space running 6GB on the vm.
Would anyone suggest a better approach or mem allocation? Also, in the metal server, I see dns is taking up 82000K. Do I need that running? I do login to the vm through remote desktop.
Any advice would be helpful. I am a dev and don't know much about hardware and setup.
