The topic describes general performance and scalability guidance for System Center 2016 – Operations Manager and higher. It recommends hardware configurations for a variety of workloads. Because System Center Operations Manager is built to be flexible and scalable, the hardware requirements for specific scenarios may differ from the guidelines that are presented here. A discussion of the factors that affect the performance of each Operations Manager component is detailed in other sections of the planning guide so that they can be adapted to specific requirements.
The environment used for setting up System Center Configuration Manager is a two server farm with one server acting as the Domain Controller and the second one will act as the SCCM Server with SQL Server 2016 installation. We will install SCCM on the same server as SQL Server for the time being. We can also extend the set up to a stand-alone SCCM server and SQL Server. The installation of SCCM is primarily divided into two sections:
- Prerequisite installation
- System Center Configuration Manager Installation
