SharePoint - machines and volumes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I have 1 SP server running on only one machine (with all the services on it) like this
    OS on drive c:
    SP Data on Drive E:\SPData
    Index on drive F:\Index

    Now I want to install a FE server but the machine only has drive C.
    What should I ask the IT guys?

    Do I need more drives on server2 or should E: and F: be shared Storage?

    Thank you so much,

  • Hi DevDiver,

    I would get another server with the same specs as server1 to maintain consistency between servers. This will help in the event you need to move the Search index to server2 in the future.
