Employee Portal System Requirements

 

To use Employee Portal, you need:


  • SQL Server with HRPro database installed on network and is accessible by Employee Portal Server
  • Operating system and software: A 32-bit/64-bit version of Microsoft® Windows® Server™ 2008 Standard or Enterprise Edition or later. 
  • Browser Supported: IE 9, 10, 11+ Firefox 3.6+, Chrome 12+ on Windows, Firefox 3.6+, Safari 4+ on Mac 10.5.7+ with JavaScript enabled
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 (should be supplied by Windows Server)
  • For Email Integration: To send email, you need an SMTP server. If you have the ability to send Internet email, you probably already have one of these somewhere. 
  • Server Hardware: Most modern Intel servers will be fine. We recommend 2 GB of memory for optimal performance. Do not run WebLeave on a server which is also running large enterprise applications such as Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Sharepoint.
  • Running IIS on domain controller is not recommended.
  • If Employee Portal is opened to the Internet, proper network infrastructure and security control are required.
Recommendation of an all-in-one (application server + database server + web server) server:
  • CPU of i3/5/7 or Xeon, 16GB RAM, 100GB Hard Disk space, preferably with 2 hard disk in RAID-1 (disk mirroring) setting. 
  • Windows Server License Required: Windows Server of latest or 2nd latest version (64-bit) 
  • Database Server License Required: No (just the free Microsoft SQL Server Express or Standard Edition of latest or 2nd latest version)
Recommendation for 3 separate servers if budget allows for best performance as shown in HRPro Network Diagram
