RDM vs. VMFS on ESX 3.5 ?


Dear experts,

On of our customer is planning to migrate their development and integration systems plus a couple production application servers on VMWare ESX 3.5.

We have already read several sap notes on the subject but have not

found anything mentioning the best practice concerning RDM (equivalent of Raw Device) vs.VMFS ?

We opened a call at SAP and they mentioned the note "1056052 - Windows: VMware ESX Server 3 configuration guideline" which only talks about VMFS.

I was wandering if any one of you had had experience on this subject ?

Thank you in advance for your reply.

Best regards,

Fabrice Dréval
