  • Hi!

    I didn't find any official specific hardware requirements, but something in the line with this:

    • Operating System Windows Server 2012R2 / Windows Server 2016
    • vCPU 2
    • vRAM 4 GB RAM
    • Disk 0 50 GB
    • Disk 1 100 GB


    Best regards,
    Leon

  • There are just a few requirements to adhere to - MDT is not particularly resource-intensive. You could skip attaching secondary disk to your VM if you use a network share for your deployment shares. Depending on a customer we are using client or server OSs (both work just as well) to run the MDT workbench.

  • It should work just fine with the MDT 2013 update 2 aswell, as mentioned the MDT is not a very resource intensive application.

  • Correct. The underlying technology did not change much since the switch to the ConfigMgr 2012 task sequence engine back in 2013. keep in mind that you will still notice performance drops depending on your VM config during storage (import operations) and CPU intensive (boot image generation) operations, so VM sizing still may matter depending on your workflow.
