SCCM 2012 R2 - All on the same box?

Posted on 2014-03-26

Last Modified: 2014-03-26
Good afternoon,

I am thinking to install SCCM 2012 R2 in my enviornment which has about 40 users all in the same site.

If installed i will be installing on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1 with SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise installed.

I plan to "ONLY" use SCCM for the below:

1. Deploy workstation OS images (average deployment usage 5 workstations every 6 months).
2. Application Catalog (containing about 30 applications)
3. Pushing applications to users (about 3 applications every year).

With such a small usage in my small enviornment would it be OK to install SCCM and the database on the same VM?

Kindly advise.

Regards,
N

Hi Nobushi.

This should not be an issue. Here are some details:

Primary site in a hierarchy (Local SQL Install)
Up to 50,000 clients
SQL Server is installed on the site server computer

The suggested hardware for the above is as follows:-
4 cores (Intel Xeon 5140 or comparable CPU)
16 GB of RAM
300 GB of hard disk space for the operating system, Configuration Manager, SQL Server, and all database files.
