virtual machine parameters for a license server

Hello experts,

I am creating a VM server 2012 in my current VMware environment. This server will be used as a license server for construction applications. I want to know what will be recommended memory, cpu and hard disk capacity I should be using for this type of server. I want this server for long haul but I do not want to over kill the resources in our Esx ENV.

If there is a sample example for the settings will be nice.
Thanks,
LVL 5

Question I need to ask is what is your projected number of Guest OSE that you would be happy with?
This along with the other questions listed below will dictate most experts replies to your question at hand.

1: If you are look are Failover/HA.
2: Do you want to store the VMDK Local or on SAN storage.
3: Type of applications and requirements of those applications.
SR ZakNetwork Solutions Author Commented:
There will be no applications on this server. This is going to be a license server and will host license tools from autodesk only.

No failover or HA is required.
I think the storage is a SAN
I don't understand what is Guest OSE.

Thank u

Are you looking to make a template vm?
SR ZakNetwork Solutions Author Commented:
yes I am looking to create a template.
yo_beeDirector of Information TechnologyCommented:
The Hardware can be adjusted prior to creating a new VM from a Template.

If you are looking to automate the deployment I would recommend building the servers with 2 Processors, 8 GB worth of RAM, 50 GB min HDD for the OS and you can always adjust them if a machine needs more or less resources after it has been deployed.  This is a general baseline machine from my experience.
