Hi XenServer Community,

Some things strike me as common sense. Here are some personal recommendations for VM best pracitices …

1. No screen savers (however still good to lock virtual screen).
2. No power saving (i.e. turn monitor off after 20 mins).
3. No defragging VMs at the same time. Defragging is a process of a physical disk.
4. Schedule antivirus scans (bad to have 30 VMs in one SR doing intensive I/O at the same time).

Regards,
James Cannon
