9.0.0

The following tables show the system requirements for BlueCat virtual machines. For optimum performance, BlueCat recommends reserving resources in your hypervisor for each specific DNS/DHCP Server and Address Manager VM, as shown in the sample screen images following the tables.

CAUTION:
Exceeding the vCPU and vRAM settings listed below is a breach of BlueCat Networks licensing terms and may result in license penalty fees being owed.
Note:
  • For DNS/DHCP Server VM deployments, a minimum free disk space of 160GB is required on the hypervisor or disk storage pool.
  • Address Manager VM images require 320GB of disk space.

The CPU resource reservation is determined by multiplying the number of vCPUs by the clock speed. For example, a DNS/DHCP Server 60 would require 4x 3.0 GHz = 12 GHz = 12,000 MHz.
