Ive been doing a lot of reading about disk capacity with regards to Zimbra...

We are going to be implementing a Zimbra 7 Collaboration server. We are also going to be migrating to a UCS Blade server on which we will run Zimbra virtualized. Compellent SAN for storage.

Here is my question, can I start building the VM on my laptop (through VM Workstation) with a small(ish) partition just for the OS and program, then later migrate it to the UCS server and give it extra storage via the SAN? Or should I just wait and build it when it has access to the SAN? I dont have access to the SAN from my laptop, and dont want to screw something up by making partitions too small if I were to build it on my laptop...

I guess the real question I am asking, is can I just reassign the data stores later without much difficulty? Or should I have a huge amount of space in the primary partition and/or do the final data stores need to be available during setup?

Thanks!
