What sort of resources do you have dedicated to the SQL vm?
What Virtual Server software are you using?
1. Right now only up to 12 total
2. Not at this time due to overall performance limitations of the hardware
3. The sole VM being MSDE and BPS has 2GB of ram running on 2 single core Xeon processors (its a dual CPU system although only a total of 2 cores) running at 3.2GHz per processor.
4. VMWare Server which is running on top of Server 2003 R2 SP2, the guest OS also has 2GB ram and shares the CPUs with the BES, and both OSs share the data RAID which is a RAID 1 across 2 drives. There is also another RAID 1 in this system and I am thinking of moving the BPS\SQL VM to that RAID to seperate the 2 OSs somewhat.
Thoughts on all of this?
