Cannot dig into how to format ECS1 server RAID-1 Array of 160 Gb in size for

Unity 4.2(1) for voicemail configuration with Exchange 2003 (on-box) w/o failover.

Thinking about 20 Gb for system partition (OS, MSDE, CUSPA Applications) and the other,

140 Gb, for Unity program files and recordings. Would this be appropriate ? Any comment ?

These seems like sufficient enough sizes for the arrays.

I can't find any Cisco recommendations for the ratio's of the sizes on each partition but this will work fine.

Please rate post....

Just found a document saying a 12GB partition for the OS is recommended so your 20GB will be plenty big enough.
