    Placement of guest os/data disks

      I am sure this question has been answered before, however I have not found an answer yet...we are setting up a new vm on an esxi 4.0 host.  We are using the software iSCSI initiator.  Our customer has requested we place the os drive on one Lun and the data drive on another lun.  His rationale is this will allow for better performance.  Our team's rationale is since this both LUNs are on the same aggregate; performance will not be greatly increased.  Also, it this may make general housekeeping less efficient.

      Is there a best practice concerning the placement of the vmdks?  I did some Google searches and couldn't really find an unequivocal answer.
