Hardware requirements for Altiris 7.1

Created: 09 Jul 2012 • Updated: 09 Jul 2012 | 6 comments

Can someone point me to the server hardware requirements to run Client Management Suite 7.1. We are also small enough that we will run the SQL server on the same box.

Is there a newer release on the horizon?

For SQL the guidance is "Running Microsoft SQL Server on virtual hardware is not recommended", for NS it can by physical or virtual, with the assumption SQL hosted elsewhere per the link in the first post (page 131).

With the support matrix it shows specifc details on support for virtulized palforms for NS, with support for ESX & Hyper-V (page 3).

For 1400 endpoints with went with a Dell R710, RAID 10 & 32 GB RAM (NS & on box SQL) and the performance has been mostly very good.
