For System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008 or VMM 2008 R2, the following are estimated system requirements for installing the VMM Administrator Console on a dedicated computer. If your computer does not meet the minimum requirements, you will not be able to install this component. Actual requirements vary based on your system configuration and the number of hosts and virtual machines that you manage.
