list server for live AX in virtual machine

  1. server AD/DC (Domain Controller) Server; windows 2008 R2 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 2GB, Core 2, 100GB VHD
  2. server Database; SQL Server 2012 R2 enterprise edition (64bit); windows 2008 R2 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 64GB, core 4, 1TB VHD + 2TB SAN VHD
  3. server Remote Services; windows 2012 R2 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 2GB, core 2, 100GB VHD
  4. server retail headquarter ax 2012; windows 2008 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 4GB, core 2, 100GB VHD
  5. server SSRS; windows 2008 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 8GB, core 4, 100GB VHD
  6. server SSAS; windows 2008 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 8GB, core 4, 500GB VHD
  7. 2 server AOS; @ ; windows 2008 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 20GB, core 4, 200GB VHD
  8. 5 server remote desktop; @ ; windows 2008 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 16GB, core 4, 100GB VHD, each server for 10-15 (max) windows user clients
  9. server Power BI and Management Reporter; windows 2008 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 16GB, core 4, 200GB VHD
  10. ticketing server; windows 2008 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 2GB, core 2, 100GB VHD
  11. server windows update & security; windows 2008 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 2GB, core 2, 500GB VHD
  12. server windows for sharepoint (if you’re using role center); windows 2008 Enterprise 64bit; RAM 8GB, core 4, 100GB VHD

thats why, because alot of server need to be setup I have to use Virtual Machine,

why I have only max 4 core in each virtual machine? because I only have windows 2008 R2 Datacenter 64bit license for physical server and it has limitation for only 4 cores in each VM; I’d recomended the newest windows server for the next project (minimum is windows 2012 R2 Datacenter 64bit)

the hardest part was, to setup the SAN

lets open for discussion for the specification
