Zimbra 8 on ESXi 5.1 Added Virtual Hard Drive as /opt Parition thin or thick ?
i am planning to install zimbra 8 on VPN hosting with 1000/GB Disk formatted using LVM on Centos 6.3
Centos 6.3 installed with 100 GB of Disk ,i added new drive on my virtual machine and want to mount on /opt for zimbra storage .
/opt ( /dev/sdb) 800GB ( VMDK THin or THick ???? )
i want to ask whether to create Thin or think drive for /opt ? is there any performance effect on zimbra ?
zimbra /opt virtual disk (800GB) added as ( Mode:Independent <Persistant >
as i configured Centos installation on Disk /dev/sda 128 GB and /opt Disk /dev/sdb 750GB ( thin drive,Independent Persistent)
i have added /opt virtual disk as independent persistent Mode. As i doesn't effect the snapshots when we want to revert any Operating system problem.
Otherwise if /opt disk is not independent then our zimbra data store /opt will also revert to previous condition.
any comments ??
