I'm building a Windows Server 2008 R2 Core domain controller and having trouble finding information on best practices on hard drive requirements specific to Windows Server Core.
The System Requirements do not differentiate between Windows GUI and Windows Core. The recommended hard drive size is 40GB. This seems excessive for a domain controller with just 1GB of RAM.
Will 10GB C:\ partition be enough considering it's a VMware VM? I don't want to waste storage on the SAN. Also, regarding other partitions on a domain controller such for NTDS, SYSVOL and Logs. What is best practice for sizing there?
Thanks and I look forward to your responses.
