    I am building a Media Agent for v10, small according to the sizing document. I am wondering if there are any special considerations, best proactises when configuring the OS (2012 R2). Also for the Index Cache drives and the Dedupe drives is there a specific block size needed or recommended.

    I've taken a look at BOL but didn't find much when looking at the v10 requirement docs.

    We have a couple of "small" MA's in our environment. I still configure the DDB disk as a 4K block size and leave the Index Cache on the OS drive. I know this isn't recommended, but I have not come across any issues with sites under 1TB of front end data.

    Most of the time I've seen it come down to I/O, if you have the spec to handle that workload you typically wouldn't see issues, until the data sets themselves start balooning
