Environment

Directory and Resource Administrator 8.1

Situation

What are the hardware requirements for installing Directory and Resource Administrator 8.1?
What are the DRA 8.1 hardware requirements?

Resolution

Server Hardware Requirements

Element

Requirements

CPU

Intel Pentium III computer, 450MHz or higher (32-bit or 64-bit hardware)

RAM

384MB

The amount of memory required depends on the number of objects in the managed domain. For more information about calculating memory usage, see "Installing DRA in Complex Environments" on p. 53 of the Installation Guide.

Drive Space

200MB and 200MB temporary space

Other Considerations

Application Event Log

The Administration products record entries in the Windows Server 2003 application event log. You may need to increase the size of your application event log.

Registry

The Administration products require about 5MB of disk space for the security data stored in the Windows 2000 registry.

Domain Files

To improve performance, the Administration server caches trusted domain information in domain files stored on the Administration server computer. If there is insufficient disk space the Administration server logs warning messages in the event log and will not be able to load information from some trusted domains. 

Domain files vary in size based on the number of user accounts, groups, OUs, and contacts in a domain. For example, a domain with 470 computers, 65 groups, and 3,000 users with the average user in 5 groups yields a domain file of 320KB. A domain with 10,000 users yields a domain file of 1MB.
