VMWare disks - best practice
Posted on 2015-01-31
I'm setting up a fairly simple ESXi box. Here are the specs:
- HP Proliant ML110 G7 with i3
- 12GB ECC RAM
- 1TB WD RE4 Enterprise drive
- Server 2012 Essentials VM
- Maybe a couple of Win 7 VM's - one of them running vSphere Client
I've read about the disks - persistent / non persistent, etc.
I need some "best practice" tips. I've set aside 500GB for the Server VM, and maybe 150GB apiece for the Win 7 VM's. Does that sound correct? Should the disks be set to "independent"? Persistent?
Thanks in advance.
