vSphere 4 Partitions

The following partitions are recommended when installed ESX 4

/                ext3        5120MB
                  swap      1600MB
/home    ext3       2048MB
/tmp       ext3       2048MB
/var        ext3       4096MB
/opt        ext3        2048MB

Note that the installer will automatically also create the following but you do not specify them as you did with previous versions of ESX

/boot     ext3             260MB
                 vmkcore   100MB
