Currently have it like this:
VM Server 2008 running SQL 2008 (non R2, that's another discussion)
SQLDB01 - Data drive
SQLLOG01 - Log Drive
SQLTEMPDB01 - Temp Drive
Using MS iSCSI initiator, i am connected to all 3 volumes and assign drives as D: (Data) L: (Logs) T: (Temp DB). All formatted as NTFS.
My question is should I drop this config and switch to VMFS drive, each in seperate Volumes on the CS220? What would be best practice. Reason for current setup was ease of migration from physical to VM and utilizing the Nimble unit for snapshots as a addition means of backup for each Volume. Anyone have input on this or a better way?
