We have just purchased two servers and iSCSCI 1) I have 2 Dell 2950 (2*quad core dual processor) Servers, one Dell Equallogi PS 5000E iSCSI array. My question is: Will it be fine architecture? If we install DC,Exchange and ISA on one ESX server and other will be there for High Availibilty and fault tolerence. Thanks DYasnyMember July 2, 2008 at 4:20 am #289119 Re: VMware ESX 3.5 with iCSCI SAN perfectly good machines for running ESX, and the SAN is good as well ________ KAWASAKI MB5 PushkarMember July 4, 2008 at 1:16 am #327681 Re: VMware ESX 3.5 with iCSCI SAN DC and exchange as VM, i dont think so it will be good…….even it will work……i think you need to first work on this scenerio in the test lab…..then only you can judge the performance…..even though your servers are good for ESX 3.5 DYasnyMember July 4, 2008 at 1:57 am #289129 Re: VMware ESX 3.5 with iCSCI SAN no probs with virtualising the DC and Exchange. however, it might be a good idea to keep your firewall/router on a separate machine ________ Maine Dispensary Author Posts Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
