Here is my question: We need a new server (file) with a large drive for storage (static files like word, excel, etc)
So the question is which is the best option and why.
Option 1: We build the VM with 2 drives C of course for OS and D drive with 1TB or maybe more for the file storage.
Option 2: We build the VM with drive C and then using ISCSI Initiator have the storage on a SAN drive and connect that way? The San box will be in the same room just on a different box.
Now I know we can do it either way and it will work but wanted to know what the consensus is for this type of setup. Just because you can do it doesn't mean it is the right way and looking for some input.
