Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Minimal Server Installation on ESXi 6.5

Categories ESXi, Linux
  • The recommended system requirements are:
  • CPU: 1 gigahertz or better
  • RAM: 1 gigabyte or more
  • Disk: a minimum of 2.5 gigabytes
  • NOTE: This installation media is a minimal install of Ubuntu which means their is no graphical user interface. Everything must be done on the command line unless you were to install the GUI yourself.
  • Minimal installations are better for a server in the sense that their are less packages to be installed and less services needed to run. This makes the instance more secure, faster and less need for resource overhead. All of this will depend on what services the server is to provide though.
