  • OS partitions

    I am currently having a disgreement with one of my collegues about creating multiple partitions for one of our virtual servers. I need a server for APP-V and our plan is to have both the application service and SQL service installed on the same box. I would like to create a virtual disk for system and another virtual disk for SQL databases but my collegue doesn't agree with that. Can you please recommend if the same partioning practices for physical servers should be appluied to virtual servers?

    IMHO yes, but that is a personal preference

      Re: OS partitions

      OS as separate partition. Sql Server can fill up your C drive pretty easily. If OS runs out of free space on system drive, you are hosed.

      Depending on guest OS, expanding system partition is simple (2008 RTM / R2) or more tricky (Server 2003).
