I would like to know what is the VM Guest setup for users that have the ZCM server setup on ESX Server.

When I built the ZCM server, I was told by Novell tech support that I should create 2 CPUs + 4GB of RAM for the VM machine (and it runs SLES10 SP2 and ZCM10.1.3 and built-in database with less than 300 managed devices). However, VMWare said we should create 1CPU and 2GB RAM VM guest and let ESX server handles the CPU & memory usage.

I wonder what is the real world experience for ZCM users that are out there?

Any input would be appreciated.
