When I started running my test lab under Virtual Server, I noticed at times that it would pause for a minute while the HD would trash. I posted some question in the mailing list and in the newsgroups; some of the idea did help but… When I came across this blog, man did turn off AV on the *.VHD and *.VSV make a huge difference! My system almost never “pauses” anymore.
If you are looking to get more out of Virtual PC or Virtual Server I recommend that you do a minimum of the flowing:
- Turn off AV on *.VHD and *.VSV
- Defrag the host hard drive
- Defrag all VM hard drives
Everything else helps, but these few things will make a world of difference.
Are you like me, are you running a virtual Server to run your test lab?
Do you want to know what the TechNet presentation team using for their reference network or what type of hardware they use? These two links will help you understand what they use for their presentations.
