Hard disk space

For the Enterprise Reporter SQL Server, we recommend the following minimum hardware.

Memory

Processor

Intel® or AMD 2 GHz multiprocessor (with at least 4cores)

Hard disk space

The Enterprise Reporter database is the storage location of all data collected for reporting. As such, the amount of hard disk space required is directly related to the amount of data being collected. The Database Size Estimator tool shipped with Enterprise Reporter can help determine how much space will be required.

Larger environments may have additional requirements for memory, processor, and hard disk space. There are many factors that can affect these requirements.

The following hardware is required for Enterprise Reporter 3.2.1 and higher.

Intel® or AMD 2 GHz multiprocessor (with at least 2 cores)

An Overview of Enterprise Reporter Communications and Credentials Required

There are many communication channels in Enterprise Reporter, involving different sets of credentials. This allows for controlled access to your environment, but you must understand where each set of credentials are used, and what permissions they need.

Figure 1 outlines where and for what each of the credentials are used, and the following tables explain the necessary permissions. For information on managing the credentials used in the Configuration Manager, see the Using the Credential Manager section in the Quest Enterprise Reporter Configuration Manager User Guide in the Technical Documentation.
