i want to create a vmdk file within the the ESX host, currently it creates the vmdk (virtual disks) on the datastore which is mounted from SAN storage.
my idea is to tell esx to use that vmdk so that i can use that as a swap file.
Currently swap files are accessed over the datastore from SAN which i think is the factor for the slow performance.
i am running vmware esx 4.1
any suggestions? how the swap files for all virtual machines be created on the local esx host??
