Hello, this is Norm. I have been tinkering with Hyper-V, which I loaded onto a Dell Optiplex 745 machine. See below the workarounds I had to incorporate to make it Hyper-V ready.
While researching storage options, I found two helpful blog posts.
From my research and some advice from one of our testers, I created my own diagram that will apply for the release of SP2 for PerformancePoint Server.
So, the following diagram is an example of a single-machine installation of PerformancePoint Server 2007 (Planning Server or Monitoring Server), an instance of SQL Server, and the corresponding storage configuration.
The diagram shows the following.
Note: The pass-through storage option prevents you from using VHD-related storage features such as VHD snapshots, dynamically expanding VHDs and differencing VHDs.
The following advantages are realized in this single-machine installation configuration.
Note: It is important that you install the integration components on the guest partition. The integration components are the additional software you run on the guest to better support Hyper-V. Windows Server 2008 already ships with Hyper-V Integration Components, but older operating systems will need to install them separately.
The Dell Optiplex 745 workarounds for Hyper-V. You might have a better solution to the problems -please comment.
