How would I lay out the LUNs and volumes for these configurations please:
2 x Exchange 2016
2 x Active Databases max. 250GB
2 x Passive Databases max 250GB
NetApp SnapManager for Exchange (SME)

I used the Exchange Calculator for...
On each Exchange Server:
      C:            System Drive - 200GB   NTFS (default Allocation Units)
      D:            Database Drive - 500GB NTFS (64k)
      E:            Database Drive - 500GB NTFS (64k)
      L:            Logs Drive - 100GB     NTFS (64k)

Open in new window


Would it be one LUN/Volume  per drive letter?
I know it is advised with 2 DB copies in DAG to have 1 volume per Database.

Single netapp would become single point of failure, i.e no point making 2 exchanges on one netapp.
Yes, one LUN per drive letter (you can make other way but it is still hard to manage under Windows)
