This post is part of the Installing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 Wave 1 On-premise Demo series in which I am creating a demo series for learning/demonstrating Business Central.
in this last post, I covered the system requirements for a demo/test system. Before getting started, I thought I would quickly post on the exact system configuration I am using for this demo system.
Firstly, I have a standalone active directory domain controller, although I don’t think it will actually be needed. I’m using it though, as I always connect my demo machines to an AD domain controller as I’ve been caught a few times needing one after initially thinking I would not.
Secondly, the Business Central server which will host all of the Business Central services. This is a server with a 100GB HDD, 4 GB RAM (below the system recommendations, but I can scale up if needed) and running Windows Server 2022 Datacenter (H21H2).
I have also installed Office 2019 Professional in order to have access to Excel and Word.
Other software requirements will be installed by the Business Central Setup utility.
