I am planning to install exchange 2016 in a VM. I do not plan to install the edge transport role, but only the mailbox role. What is the best practice in regards to configuring the harddrives?
1. should I just have 1 drive and have the OS, database and logs on one drive, or
2. have 1 drive for the OS and 1 drive for the database and logs or
3. have 3 separate drives, 1 for the OS, 1 for the database and 1 for the logs
I am running scale computing, so the host servers are running on linux, and the hosts manage the data blocks whether they are written to a platter drive or an SSD. I have both platter drives and SSD in my host servers.
