  • 2008 and 2008r2 lab setup

    Hello everyone Iím building 2 * 2008r2 servers with hyper-v for testing, learning and experimenting with 2008 and 2008r servers, My main concern is the amount of memory in each of them; each server will run the 2008r2 parent , 2 vm with 2008 or 2008r2 ( some with Exchange ) and also a Windows 7 Pro for use a client. So how much memory I should allow to each of the parent, and the VM OS, I doníT want run on bare minimum but I doníT need something to run 10,000 users, as I will be the only one, I want something confortable to play with.

    P.S. the 2 server are build on 6 cores AMD 1090t

    MS training courses have 2008 VMs running with 1Gb RAM without issues, but a lot depends on other roles

    IMHO 2GB for bare bones server, +2 for SQL, Exchange or Sharepoint
