Best creation of VMs and base image in Hyper V 2012
Posted on 2016-08-26
Just need some quick advice.
I am virtualising an entire estate this weekend so will have CRM+SQL, Exchange, File, DC+DHCP+DNS+PRINT, DC+DHCP+DNS+PRINT, RDS
I am creating a base image of dynamic disk 60GB which I am getting up to scratch tonight with updates and AV etc...
Then will sysprep and copy VM and start to build the infrastructure and then services.
a) All sound good so far ?
b) In my VMs. I can just expand the 60GB for each type of VM as some will need more like Exchange and the CRM+SQL. And run the VM Guest OS and Data on 1 VHDX. Or is there any amazing performance hits if I dont create 2x VHDX.. one for Guest OS and one for Guest Data/App etc...
Would like some steer before tomorrow AM please.
Many thanks everyone
