VI3 LUN and VM Planning


This is a very interesting thread on VMTN Discussion Forum that begin with some questions posed by jjpcarroll:

My main questions are:




  • Is it vital to seperate OS and data LUN's? Is RAID5 fine for both data and OS?


  • How large does the RDM file LUN need to be?


  • I read that you should only have 15 -20 VM's connecting to each LUN for i/o reasons is this correct?

Read all and post your answer (also if the thread is marked answered).
