Capture image size

What do you recomend?

I'm caputuring them as large as possible (32GB) at the moment, to simplify maintenece, not having to recapture the image because of lack of space on the system partition (updates, new programs and such).

Is the only drawback with a large image longer capture time?

  • OS Image size has an direct impact on the memory usage on the WSM server.
    Rule of thumb: big as needed, but small as possible.
    Have a look at page 38 of the WSM Sizing and Planning Guide, which is available at the Wyse Knowledge base.

    You can also extend an exiting OS Image once you run out of disk space inside the virtual disk.
