Skype For Business hardware requirement RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was looking at below article regarding Hardware requirement to install Skype For Business Server, it is mentioned that at least 72 GB free disk space is required but in actuality SFB FE installation takes only around 20 GB.

    Please help me to understand the logic behind the mentioned requirement. Would it mean if we try to install SFB Server with 50 GB disk space, it will give an error ?


    Best Regards,

    By my test, SFB server will be installed without any errors when we use 50G disk space. 72GB is recommended, because 72GB could store more SFB logs. it didn’t mean we must have 72GB free space. If there are any questions, please be free to let me know.

    Best Regards,
