Disk Partition for EHP4/Windows server 2008/SQL server 2008

Hi All

What is the drive partition recommendation for EHP4 ERP6 on Windows server 2008 and SQL server 2008? I have checked the notes/ SAP Documents but have not find any information related with SAP recommendation on this. Please help.

I need the recommended partition size for SAP application , transaction log, SAP datafiles , MS SQL server installation files for DEV/QUA/Production

If you have a similar landscape for EHP4 , can you check in your DEV,QUA, Production set up and tell the allocated and used partition size for SAP application, transaction log, SAP datafiles, MS SQL server installation files.

    First: don't use partition, use separate disks (physical disks).

    The normal way would be:

    - you create a sizing project at

    - your hardware vendor picks up that sizing and recommends a hardware and a setup of the filesystems

    How much space you need for your environments depends on how you plan to use the system, amount of users, estimated amount of transactions etc. It's impossible to suggest here something without knowing anything about your environment.

      No, We lived our system on SR1 with the initial DB size was 80GB then we upgraded our system by the SR3 in the EOY 2008.

      We are Planning to move on EHP4 in the 1st Quarter.
