    Provisioning Exchange 2016 on Vsphere 5.5

    Wajeeh Enthusiast

      Dear All,


      We will provision exchange 2016 on vpshere 5.5, before we begin I am looking for suggestions for vmdk. We will be going with vmdk and as read should be thick type. But now in thick type, should go for eager or lazy zeroed. I read also that if you have eager zeroed disk and later you need to extend and if extension is performed using GUI the extended part will be lazy zeroed.


      Please advise how to proceed considering of vmdk disk live extension in future since in exchange server, there are possibilities that you need to extend vmdk where information store for exchange are residing. Please don't provide with vmware best practice document for exchange, I am not clear when I read it.


      Waiting for response.
