    Vcenter install - Minimum disk size for a small virtual lab ?

    genkinyc Novice

      Hi,

       

      Reading the documentation, and noted the minimums of 120GB, 8GB RAM and 2 CPUs for the vCenter install.

       

      This is my first time installing, I am trying to build a home lab and to learn and obtain the VCP-DC certification.

       

      I have installed VMware Workstation Pro and 2 instances of ESX, and now am preparing to install vCenter ISO on a Win10 Virtual machine.

       

      Can I get away with less that 120GB ?

       

      Any other pointers on how to setup this home lab - I am a little lost on the setting up Windows 2016 server for Active Directory, DHCP and DNS.

       

      Thanks !
