Server Requirements for WDS and KMS

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I'm looking to get some information on server requirements for WDS and KMS.

We have servers that meet the hardware requirements and software requirements..... 2003 SP1

I'm curious on if we have to dedicate an entire server to these services as that may not be an option. How do they interact with other applications? What kind of processing power do they require?

Some more information: The WDS may or may not be used for a roll-out but will mostly lie dormat except for the occasional re-imaging of a PC. The KMS will initially support around 90 PC's but end result would be 500-600.

Any information will be helpful! Thanks in advance!
