Want to configure the VMware 5.5 on a new Dell server. 5 Hard Disks are running RAID-5 and mainly support two guest, Window File & SQL Server.

What strip size for RAID should I configure ?

What's the strip size for VM datastore should I use ?

Do I need explicity configure the guest disk before installing the OS ? What strip size is recommended for Window & SQL Server ?
