I will preface by stating that I am programmer that has acquired some sysadmin extra duties. I have a server that I have installed VMware vSphere 5 on. The server has two raid arrays. 2 600GB disks in a Raid 1 and 5 2TB disks in a raid 5. Therefore I have two datastores added. I plan to install at minimum 3 VM's. One for some domain tasks, one for a fileserver and the other for a testing machine.
Is there a best practice for installing with the multi raid arrays? How should the datastore's be created? The larger raid array was going to be for the file server.
This is a blank server so if I need to reinstall I can. This can also be a VMFS-5 file system.
