System Requirements

Deployment Agent (AClient, DAgent, and ADLAgent): Deployment Agents require network connectivity and around 5 MB disk space. Other system requirements are the same as the host operating system.

Deployment Server: We recommend running the Deployment Server components on a modern, dedicated server with a 1 GHz or faster processor with 1 GB or more of RAM. At an absolute minimum, this server should have a PIII-compatible 600 MHz or newer processor with 512 MB RAM.

If the database will be hosted on the same computer as your Deployment Server, you need a minimum of 512 MB additional memory, with an additional 1 GB recommended.

Computers hosting additional PXE servers and file shares should meet the requirements of the operating system hosting these components.

Automation Requirements: Microsoft recommends 512 MB of memory for computers booting WinPE. At a minimum, you should have 384 MB to avoid boot error.

Database Requirements

See the system requirements and guidelines for the database version you are running.
