Virtualizing the OS drive of a Physical SQL Server ONLY
Posted on 2014-10-31
In VMware vSPhere 5.x, can anybody tell me whether it is possible to take a physical SQL Server, disconnect the current direct connection to an iSCSI LUN on the SAN (currently D:\ - data), virtualize only the OS drive of that server, then reconnect the physical LUN from the iSCSI SAN back to the now virtualized OS (VM) and have it work properly?
I know you can use RDMs, but I have never used one before and am not sure based on my initial research whether what I am trying to do even makes sense.
Thanks in advance!!
