I want to add a new harddisk to an existing VM and want the best performance possible. The new hard disk will exist on an NFS datastore. Currently I did the following:
- Created new vmdk on NFS datastore
- Created new lvm partition using fdisk
- Create new physical volume, volume group, and logical volume (2TB)
- Created ext3 partition on logical volume
Is there a better way to do this? Should I be doing some vmware-ish file system instead?
