I'm in the process of re-purposing a server that is Running SBS 2008.  I am going to install 2012 as a Hyper-v with 2 guest OS's.  The First will be 2012 Essentials R2 as a domain controller and the second guest will be Server 2012 running Exchange 2013.  There will only be 10 mailboxes on the exchange server.
My hardware is a single processor Xeon Dell T310 server with a PERC6i disk controller with 4 1TB HD's Planning on using RAID 10.

I assume that the databases from exchange should be separate from its virtual drive.

What do you recommend for the drive configuration of this setup.
