I was wondering if someone could clarify a best practice solution that we are having?
Hp has given me conflicting opinions on how many disk groups we should have. I was taught at HP school to have one, but recently an HP engineer said we should have two especially if we are running a database incase the meta data get corrupted.

Currently we have one disk group and have two vdisk per sql server (1 for logs 1 for database)

Well, as always, it depends!!

Performance wise one disk group is best
Availability wise more than one disk group can be beneficial

You find the official HP best practice configuration guidelines in the following two whitepapers:
