System Requirements for Platinum Server Software

  • Platinum Versions of the software (i.e., 90000 series serial numbers, or 95000 for Platinum SQL Server).
  • A multi-core processor is recommended.
  • The network must have the TCP/IP protocol.
  • 2 GB RAM is the minimum memory requirements of the Platinum Server.
  • Ensure that plenty of free disk space is available. Temporary files created on the server can be quite large. Minimum free space of four (4) times the data set size is recommended. Each HotBackup requires enough disk space for the entire data set.
  • Windows Server: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Windows Server 2012, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 (either 64-bit or 32-bit version), Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Small Business Server 2011/2008 (either 64-bit or 32-bit version), Windows 10, Windows 8, or Windows 7. Recommended that all current Service Packs be installed. A 64-bit operating system is required for Platinum SQL Server.
     When running the Platinum Server on a non-server operating system (i.e., Windows 10/8/7), you are limited to the number of concurrent connections and may exceed the connection limit in that operating system.
  • Platinum Exchange Connector: If using the Platinum Exchange Connector, refer to the Knowledge Base Article R11596, “Configuring the PracticeMaster Platinum Exchange Connector,” for specific installation requirements.
  • Workstation: Windows 10/8/7/Vista. Recommended that all current Service Packs be installed.
  • High speed wired network recommended. Wireless networks are not recommended due to performance and reliability issues.

Any other Tabs3 or PracticeMaster software you use must be upgraded to the Platinum version on all other networked computers.
