i have two diskgroups with 3 hardisk drives. Below are some detail information

1.) Basic Disk Group = 2 drives = 4 partition
2.) UsersData Disk Group = 1 drive = 2 partitions (from 2 partitions the one partition is SRL logs)

Symantec Super Session at VMworld 2009: Wednesday, September 2 at 10:00 AM

Of course I may be a little biased because I will be presenting, but there are a lot of reasons why you should make Symantec’s Super Session a priority during your VMworld 2009 experience

Steve Morton, Vice President of Product Marketing, and myself will present on strategies and best practice around pain points customers have faced during virtualization deployments

Steve has threatened to change the format on me, live on stage, and I am hoping this isn’t true. However, he is known to be a joker so I guess I will just have to wait and see what happens

Our goal is to share examples of how others have solved complex virtualization problems. You will see how a municipality in Florida was able to reduce a half-day virtual machine recovery to 15 minutes. This cut their backup time by 96% using Symantec solutions. Data protection and storage management...
