SCCM 2012 ConfigMgr -Memory requirement and User installation rights RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Can anyone please advice that how much memory required for SCCM configMgr 2012 with SQL Server 2008 R2 standard.

    And can i install SCCM 2012 and SQl server 2008 using different domain user account which have full local admin rights instead of using domain administrator account?

    is 6GB RAM enough for SCCM 2012 configMgr and SQL server 2008 standard for 1000 users?

  • Here is a link for the supported configurations of Configuration Manager 2012.


    If SQL is on the same box as Configuration manager you will need to reserve 50% of the total memory for SQL. Its actually recommended to have at least 8gb for SQL. You should also cap your SQL memory so it is not set to unlimited.

    I personally think you will see performance issues with 6gb of memory. If you can swing 16gb, you can configure SQL with a minimum of 8gb cap it at 12 which can leave a minimum of 4 for your OS and Configuration  Manager.
