ESXi 6.0 - Disk Alignment - MS EXC2013 - SQL2014

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I do not find anything about Disk Alignment Issue on ESXi 6.0 in combination with MS SQL 2014 or EXC2013.

It is anymore a possible issue ?

There are special Best Practices ?

Thank you in advance for any Hints.

Andrea

There's nothing for you to worry about, disk alignment is pretty much a non-existing issue these days unless you manually mess with partition tables yourself and configure sub-optimal starting sectors.

ESXi has always automatically (or at least since version 2.x/3.x) aligned VMFS formatted partitions on physical block storage volumes.

Likewise, Windows is aligning partitions automatically since Server 2008 as well, so you're good.
