Check NTFS permissions as well. Remember most restrictive applies.

Sure you can create a RAM disk, some of the new blades use 1.5TB of RAM these days.

comment Slow Performance on Exported Hyper-V VMs
At first hand it does seem odd. I suggest firmware upgrades on the PERC and even the hard drive (I have had that once before where a firmware fix increased performance). I'm thinking of other options..

comment Active Directory Sync to Remote Domain
I might have not come across correct, we need Name, Last Name, SamAccountName and Password to sync from the client. Sorry English is not my first language :)

SSD trumps anything at the moment, but you get various versions. You actually get SSD disks that perform similar to non-SSD disks. You also get the incredible PCI Express SSD disks, they use PCI Express as a bus and not SAS. We use HP P2000 SANs, and the SSD disks that you buy for them are very fast but very expensive, we dont really need the super-speed at the moment (and 12 x cheap 7200RPM SAS disks in RAID10 performs better than 8 x 10k SAS disks in RAID5). So configuration is just as important to increase speed.

I can set up scripts to do the exports and compare / imports. Do I need PES to export the passwords?

Did you test by plugging the second hard drive into the second 4Xmini-SAS connector on the controller?

comment Active Directory Sync to Remote Domain
A user object is created in the AD of the Client because they have existing portals referencing these objects for login details, we need a one-way sync to our Hosted Exchange environment where we then add the Exchange and Lync attributes. Passwords will always only be changed on the client's AD. (They actually have TDS syncing to a secure domain with FIM which in turn need to sync to us).
