I would like to ask what are the proposed, but minimal requirements for a BIND9 DNS server in VMWare (Win8, 64 bit host). I want to use to name my virtual machines, without maintaining all the hosts files. This is only for development and learning purposes. Requirements:

  • CentOS 6.4 (or maybe Ubuntu Server 13.04)
  • No GUI
  • 64 bit is ok? Or should be 32bit VM?
  • is 64/128 MB RAM enough?
  • As hard drive, for a minimal centos + openssh (I prefer PuTTY) + bind9 is 2 GB hard drive enough?

Thank you in advance.
