Overview

This document contains the minimum client hardware requirements, server
recommendations and Terminal Server minimum hardware requirements supported by
the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Support Team. The following server
recommendations are not minimum server requirements. The requirements and
recommendations are based on experience with many different installations. Users may
need to increase these requirements due to environmental factors to achieve individual
performance expectations.

Review each Customer Profile below to determine what profile best fits the user count,
modules used and transaction volume for your environment. Use that Customer Profile
as a recommendation for your server hardware implementation.

Please review the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Documentation for requirements specific to
each feature, such as the Homepage and Email feature.  Click HERE to also reference the
Technology Requirements for each feature for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010.

NOTES
1. NEW! Windows Hotfix KB 983533 is required for Microsoft Dynamics GP to be
supported with the TS RemoteApp feature in Windows Server 2008 and Windows
Server 2008 R2.  Click HERE to review a Hot Topic for more details.

2. The following features/products are not supported on an x64 machine:

a. Rapid Migration Tool
b. Microsoft FRx Report Designer 6.7
-Microsoft FRx DrillDown Viewer
-Microsoft FRx Report Launcher
-Microsoft FRx Report Manager
-Microsoft FRx Report Server
-FRx Report Wizard
-Analytical Accounting Dimension Wizard
c. Microsoft FRx Forecaster 6.7
d. Microsoft FRx Web Port 6.7
e. Enterprise Reporting 7.5

3. 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.
4. If accessing Citrix, the hardware and software must be supported according to the
Citrix configuration requirements.
5. Verify processors can be upgraded.
6. The amount of RAM needed depends on the number of concurrent users per Terminal
Server.
7. Verify switch is capable of handling network traffic.
8. Increased user count may require greater RAM and Processor speed.
9. Users utilizing FRx or Crystal reporting via Terminal Services may require increased
hardware to increase performance.
10. 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. For more information, click
the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
897615 Support policy for Microsoft software running in non-Microsoft hardware
virtualization software.
