Windows 2012 server...Dell...how big should the 1st partition be? Server is file and print sharing only
Posted on 2014-10-25
Have a Dell R730 server. Came with Raid 5, 3 TB to make 2TB. The server is asking how big the boot partition should be. Dell recommends 60 gigs. Is 60 gigs enough? Eventually, would like to add SQL to this server. I was thinking of a 120GB boot but was not sure. Let me know what you recommend. In the past using Windows 2003 (old!) servers, the boot was 120GB but on some Windows 2012 servers the boot from Dell was 40gb. I know it easy to expand Windows 2012 but I want to get it right the first time.
