Two virtual drives on one VHDX
Posted on 2014-10-29
Hi again with another obstacle on implementing VMs in S2012r2.
I do not know how to do in Hyper-V what an IT set up for me in ESXi years ago. Hopefully you do. What I want to do is have a virtual machine representing 2 raid arrays on the host.
My database apps are on a raid 1 array of ssds, while my documents are on a big raid 10 array of hdds. I want to have a single vhdx that has a volume from each array on my host, since that is what I've had on my old server with ESXi. I built my server assuming I could do this in Hyper-V.
I have not been using powershell, which is G(r)eek, but have made many attempts with GUI, which is impotent it seems.
Can you give me any hope and instructions on getting this done?
