IIS 7.0+

Internet Information Server (IIS) 7.0 and later versions can be downloaded from Microsoft’s Download Center.

Note
Important Note

You must install System CLR Types first and then SQL Server SMO. In addition, note that SQL Server SMO 2014 version is not supported.

Windows Server

Windows Server 2008 R2 or later. It is recommended to use Windows Server 2016.

SQL Server

SQL Server 2008 R2 or later. It is recommended to use SQL Server 2016.

Hardware Requirements

CPU

  • 1.4 GHz (64-bit processor) or faster for single core.

  • 1.3 GHz (64-bit processor) or faster for multi-core.

  • 3.1 GHz (64-bit processor) or faster multi-core.

Storage

  • 1 GB for Web App.

  • 2 GB for File Storage on the Server.

RAM

  • 8GB or more. It is highly recommended to have at least 16GB.

Key Considerations

  • The server(s) in which ReportPlus Server is ultimately installed must be part of the Active Directory domain. If the database server is in a different computer, that computer also needs to be part of the same Active Directory domain.

  • If you are running an SQL Server Express version, ReportPlus Server may throw exceptions. If SQL Server is not installed yet, avoid installing Express versions.

  • The ReportPlus Server installer must be executed in the same server where the Internet Information Server (IIS) is installed.

  • The user executing the installation must have Administrator permissions over both IIS and the SQL Server to be used.

  • The Web App will be configured using port 9021 by default.

  • If larger Excel files are going to be used, more local storage may need to be allocated for the Web Server.
