Minimum Hardware Requirements

This section outlines the minimum and recommended hardware requirements for each MOM component. If you want to install more than one MOM component on the same computer, follow the highest minimum hardware requirements for any of the combined MOM components.

You can use the MOM Prerequisite Checker in MOM Setup to check the hardware and software prerequisites, and to create a report that lists which prerequisites your system meets or does not meet to install and use MOM 2005 SP1.

To Install All MOM Components on One Computer, You Must Have:

  • Pentium-compatible 550 MHz dual-processor or higher

  • 1 GB of RAM (4 GB or higher recommended)

  • 1 GB of available hard disk space (For Reporting, much more drive space might be needed)

  • CD-ROM drive (if installing MOM from this computer)

  • Network adapter

To Use the MOM 2005 SP1 Management Server, You Must Have:

  • Pentium-compatible 550 MHz processor or higher (dual Pentium-compatible 450 MHz processors or higher recommended)

  • 512 MB of RAM (1 GB or higher recommended)

  • 5 GB of available hard disk space

  • CD-ROM drive (if installing MOM from this computer)

  • Network adapter

To Use the MOM 2005 SP1 Database, You Must Have:

  • Pentium-compatible 550 MHz processor or higher (dual Pentium-compatible 450 MHz processors or higher recommended)

  • 512 MB of RAM (1 GB or higher recommended)

  • 5 GB of available hard disk space

  • Network adapter

Note

A best practice is to use a dedicated computer for the production MOM Database.

It is also recommended that you review the Performance and Sizing Guide at .

To Use the MOM 2005 SP1 Reporting Server, You Must Have:

  • Pentium-compatible 550 MHz processor or higher (dual Pentium-compatible 450 MHz processors or higher recommended)

  • 512 MB of RAM (1 GB or higher recommended)

  • 200 GB of available hard disk space to install Reporting Server and the initial reporting database

    Note

    As your reporting database grows you will require more space. It is recommended that you plan for database growth and factor in a higher space requirement on the computer when you install Reporting Server.

  • Network adapter

To Use the MOM 2005 SP1 Administrator Console and Operator Console, You Must Have:

  • Pentium-compatible 500 MHz processor or higher (Pentium-compatible 1 GHz processor or higher recommended)

  • 128 MB of RAM (256 MB or higher recommended)

  • 150 MB of available hard disk space

  • Windows 2000-compatible video graphics adapter capable of displaying 1024  768 resolution with 24 bit color or higher recommended

  • Network adapter

  • Mouse or other pointing device

To Use SQL Server Reporting Services, You Must Have:

  • Pentium-compatible 550 MHz processor or higher (dual Pentium-compatible 450 MHz processors or higher recommended)

  • 256 MB of RAM (1 GB or higher recommended)

  • 10 GB of available hard disk space

  • Network adapter

For Each Agent-Managed Computer, You Must Have:

  • Pentium-compatible 200 MHz processor or higher (Pentium-compatible 300 MHz processor or higher recommended)

  • 128 MB of RAM (more memory might be necessary depending on which Management Packs you use)

  • The size of the installed agent software is approximately 3 MB. It is recommended that you allocate 100 MB of available hard disk space for agent use (more hard disk space might be necessary depending on which Management Packs you use)

  • 3 MB of additional hard disk space is necessary for each management group that a multihomed agent is added to
