  • Physical to Virtual Server move

    I have an 8 Core, 2.27GHz system with 12GB ram server. I want to run Sharepoint, Exchange and File Server on 1 first VM / Mail & Web filtering, Proxy Server, SQL and Print server on 2nd VM and Terminal Server on 3nd VM. How many cores and RAM do I assign to each vm as I know I need more RAM as well?

    Re: Physical to Virtual Server move

    Too many unknowns to answer properly:
    Which versons of OS and Server apps?
    How many users?

    Exchange and SQL will grab all available memory so may be better on separate VMs.
    Filtering should be in a DMZ role and proxy server (at least TMG) should be border machines so not combined with other roles.
