P2000 G3 SAS ODX feature

Hello All,

 

Few questions regarding MSA P2000 G3. Currently have 10 x 900GB drives installed in them.

 

Does anyone know if MSA P2000 G3 SAS supports the ODX feature for HYper-V 2012 R2?

 

What is the best practise in creating vdisk and Volumes?

Should i create one vdisk and select the whole vdisk as one volume or one vdisk and several volumes?

 

Thanks for the help in advance.

 

Regards

Nimesh

My Information is: P2000 G3 no ODX yet and not in Future.

 

One vdisk only uses one Controller.

To use both Controller, you have to configure two vdisk.

 

Only one Volume will give a very Big one.

Think about the Restore/Repair time if this big Volume needs recovery.


======================
That was not planned in this way.

Thanks Cali.

 

I'll create 2 vDisk -

vdisk1. Raid 10 contain 4 x 900GB Sas drive giving me 1.8TB

vdisk2. Raid 6 contain 6 x 900GB SAS drive.

 

vdisk1 will contain few volumes conatingin Exchange and SQL log files

vdisk2 will contain around 4 volumes containing all the other files like OS VDH file and data files.
