Hardware requirements to run Intel SCS Console and RCSConsole on Windows Server 2016

I've been trying to track down any information on the hardware requirements suggested to run the VPro suite (console, RCS, etc) on a Windows Server 2016 Standard system. This is a virtual server.

 

So far all I've been able to find is that it does support the OS level. Nothing more. Should I just go by the hardware requirements for the OS itself or does Intel have any suggested requirements of their own?

Hello aJKey,

 

Thank you for joining the community

 

There are no specific hardware requirements other than the OS requirements itself needed to run the RCS server software. The RCS server service just needs to run on Windows and interacts with other AMT devices through the network. AMT devices though does need to be vPro hardware compliant in order to be provisionable and remote accessible. If you will be running the RCS server and console from a virtual machine just make sure the network connectivity is bridged with the physical NICs.

 

Hope it helps

Hello Jose,

 

I apologize, I've been trying to get logged into the forum for a couple of days with no success.

 

Yes, your answer was exactly what I needed and we're building out the server accordingly. Thank you for your help with this.
