SCCM 2007 Capacity planning details Maximum Support Limitations

0

Maximum support limitations of SCCM 2007. However, in my personal experience this would change depending upon the scenarios (Mostly depending upon the connectivity, features, support model, SLA and DR/BCP requirements)Disk & other hardware configuration details listed below can be used to get very rough idea about the sizing and planning. Actual numbers should vary depending upon the scenarios.
