Hi Folks,

I'm about to deploy additional Exchange Server 2013 Standard Mailbox server that will be running IP-less DAG.
what is the recommended CPU best practice for VMware VM deployment ?

8 Sockets 1 Cores
2 Sockets 4 Cores
4 Sockets 2 Cores
1 Sockets 8 Cores

The Operating System will be running on Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition.

Which one is better for the Exchange server VM and what are the caveats or pitfall that I need to be aware of.
