  • Hi All,

    I am aware that you cant Virtualise OCS 2007 R2 due to the amount of through put but is it possible to VM the SQL back end?

    Sorry I am extremely new to this - I was asking a question. Have I done something wrong? If so I am sorry.

  • Although not recommended for heavy production workloads and applications with real-time characteristics, and that databases are disk intensive and can substantially load the network, there are supported scenarios with some restrictions to virtualize SQL Server 2005/2008.

    Hope this helps. Thanks.
