The support team told me to create one VMDK for each DB and LOG.
Do you agree ?

I did the test just with one DB and one LOG, each on an extra VMDK.
The test was successful.

A virtual machine disk for database, and a virtual machine disk for logs, is the general best practice recommendation for Exchange.

So I would concur and agree.

that depends on the size of disk you are creating MBT only supports up to 2TB

GPT up to 64TB.

So if you think you'll every need to expand above 2TB, create them as GPT, otherwise MBR ot GPT

I created now for each DB location a seperate disk. And for each LOG location I also created a seperate disk.
I used for all GPT table.
