I n this series of articles, I will show you how to setup System Center Configuration Manager 2016 (SCCM) lab on Dell PowerEdge R710 with OS Windows Server 2016.
At the end of this series, I will have fully functional System Center Configuration manager 2016 Lab on bare metal Dell PowerEdge R710 with 96 GB Ram, Intel Xeon X5670 @ 2.93 GHZ Processor. This SCCM Lab will be setup very similar to enterprise level production environment. The step by step instructions will include:
Let’s get started …
Mode: Dell PowerEdge R710
CPU: Intel Xeon X5670 @2.93 GHx (2Processors)
Note! You can always go with lower specs if needed.
Operating System: Microsoft Windows Server 2016
Hypervisor: Microsoft HyperV
The minimum hardware requirements to Install Windows Server 2016 are 64-Bit processor architecture, 1.4 GHz processor speed, 2GB Memory (RAM) and 160 GB of hard disk. For SCCM Lab I will be installing Windows Server 2016 on Hardware mentioned above as a host. I will then enable Microsoft Hyper V feature and create fully functional SCCM 2016 lab in virtual environment.
Boot the machine with Windows Server 2016 boot able media.
This should conclude Installation of Windows Server 2016 on host machine. In the next article, I will show you how to install setup Domain Controller in Virtual environment.
