I want to migrate from a fileserver w2k8r2to a new fileserver, Profiles, UserHome, Groupdata.
I have connected a VMDK 2 TB Performance Policy VMware ESX 5 4096 Bytes and Partitioned default, a RDM 2 TB with Performance Policy Windows File 4096 Bytes Server and Partitioned with 4096 Bytes Blocksize.
What is your best practice for a virtual File Server Volume? Any other tipps and tricks to observe?
RDM seems to be a little bit faster than VMDK. 7 - 10 seconds R/W small files.
Large files the same speed.
