  • Hard disk partitioning

    Hi All,

    I'm about to partition our SAN to for our new ShoreTel server.

    I was wondering what sizes to use. I have looked at the recommended specs but I would just like to know what you guys have done.

    This is what I was thinking:-

    C:\ = System & Web Site = 30GIG
    D:\ = MySQL = 2GIG
    E:\ = Log Files = 40GIG
    F:\ = Voice mail = 20GIG

    What do you think?

    Jamie.

    Partitioning

    I dont think I would make a 2GB partition for anything......

    I would go with a boot partition and then a single data volume for all the other items....

    you wont gain any speed by separating into 4 volumes when using a SAN.


    and if you have a SAN that means you should have some storage space avaialble... dont cut yourself so tight. Go with like a 50GB boot volume and a 150GB data volume.....

      Also in eazeaz prospective, having less VD's to mange = more time for you.

        Thing is, it's really easy to expand, you basically click a button, so it's easy enough to change if things get tight.

        I like to keep things seperate just for continuity purposes. I can't see the mySQL database getting anywhere near that size.
