Terminal Server Requirements
Item Requirements
Operating System • Windows Server 2008 SP2
• Windows Server 2003 SP2
Citrix (Optional) Citrix Presentation Server 3.0 or 4.0
Processors Two Dual Core or Four Single Core
Disk Configuration RAID 1 for operating system and applications (two disk)
RAM Two GB or more
Network Card 100 MB Full Duplex or 1GB Ethernet
Users 15-20 users per Terminal Server
Virtual Environments Supported (Optional) Hardware Virtualization: Microsoft Virtual PC, Virtual Server, Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V

Software Virtualization: Microsoft SoftGrid 4.2

Notes

1. It is recommended to have a dedicated Terminal Server/Citrix Server.  There may be performance losses if Microsoft SQL Server is running on the Terminal Server/Citrix Server.  Therefore, it is highly recommended to have two separate servers.  One server with Terminal Server and/or Citrix and one server with Microsoft SQL Server. 
2. The FRx Application wont run on 64-bit but sysdata directory can.
3. The Easy Print functionality of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is not supported.
4. If accessing Citrix, the hardware and software must be supported according to the Citrix configuration requirements.
5. Make sure processors can be upgraded to 4 processors for Standard Edition or 8 processors for Enterprise Edition
6. The amount of RAM needed depends on the number of concurrent users per Terminal Server.
7. Recommend no more then 25 users per 100 Base T network card, unless a Fiber NIC is installed.  If a Fiber NIC is installed, the SQL Server should also have a Fiber NIC installed for optimal network performance. 
8. Verify switch is capable of handling network traffic
9. Increased user count may require greater RAM and Processor speed
10. Users utilizing FRx or Crystal reporting via Terminal Services may require increased hardware to increase performance.
11. When you deploy a system in a virtual environment, make sure that you have sufficient hard disk space to avoid performance problems. Each computer that you deploy in a virtual environment should meet or exceed the random access memory (RAM) requirements and the hard disk space requirements.

A dedicated server is recommended.

10 Reasons to Upgrade to Version 10

*These requirements apply to systems with up to 15 users and fewer
than 500 transactions per day. Please contact us if you exceed
these numbers or import large amounts of data.
