2. REQUIREMENTS CLIENT WORKSTATION

2.1. Minimum requirements for BMD NTCS

These are the minimum requirements for workstations which are integrated in the network and which use BMD software centrally on the server.

 

>= Intel Core i3 v4
2 GB free RAM for the BMD NTCS software (total memory depending on operating system,
>= 2 GB for Windows 7 SP1
4 GB for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10)

The existing resources must not fall below Windows requirements.
 

Required storage space*

 

The storage space requirements depend on the BMD product used and by the amount of user data.
At least 10GB free storage space must be available for installing the client.

 

* These storage specifications also apply to the requirements in section 2.2.

 

2.2. Recommended System for BMD NTCS

 

These are the recommended specifications for client workstations which are integrated in the network and which use BMD software centrally on the server.
 

>= Intel Core i3 v6
>= 2.4GHz base clock speed
4 GB free RAM for BMD NTCS Software (total memory depending on operating system,
>= 4 GB for Windows 7, for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10)
SSD Drive

 

The existing resources must not fall below Windows requirements. 40 GB free hard drive space.
 

 

NTCS Power Users require at least 4GB of memory (especially when doing reporting, such as COAC or balance sheet processing), as most reports are processed in memory. This significantly increases the processing speed. It is also strongly recommended for these users to connect to the server via a 1GBit connection. Furthermore, we highly recommend to use a CPU with a core speed of >= 3GHz, since it is a high core speed (not a greater number of cores) that is beneficial to the speed of BMD NTCS. The power-saving mode of the operating system must be configured to high performance.

 

3. REQUIREMENTS OPERATING SYSTEM

3.1. Supported operating systems 

 

BMD NTCS clean installation:

Server:
•    Windows Server 2012 incl. all Security Updates (x64)
•    Windows Server 2012 R2 incl. all Security Updates (x64)
•    Windows Server 2016 incl. all Security Updates (x64)
•    Windows Server 2019 incl. all Security Updates (x64)

 

CAUTION!

 

Depending on the operating system in use, the BMD NTCS setup installs the latest possible SQL Server version if the system requirements are met. For further details, please refer to the section "Database/operating-system versions supported by BMD NTCS".

 

The database compatibility level of the BMD database must be set to SQL 2014. If the prerequisites are not met, SQL 2014 is installed.

 

 

Client:

•    Windows 7 SP1 incl. all Security Updates*
•    Windows 8.1 incl. all Security Updates*
•    Windows 10 incl. all Security Updates

 

* BMD recommends using Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise.


CAUTION!

The BMDNTCS Setup automatically installs SQL 2017 if the system requirements are met (starting with Windows 8.1).


If the prerequisites are not met, SQL 2014 is installed.

 

Both on the client and on the server .Net Framework in a version >= 4.6.2 is necessary.

 

Windows XP, Windows Vista and older versions are no longer supported, as these operating systems are no longer maintained or supported by Microsoft. Therefore, certain components required by the BMD software no longer run on these operating systems, for example, the report generator. BMD also strongly recommends to switch to a newer operating system.


http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/search/default.aspx
 

4. ABOUT UPDATES, PATCHES, NEW FEATURES

 

The operating system must be in a flawless, error-free state. To achieve this, install the latest service packs and patches from the operating system vendors. Errors due to insufficient or faulty patches or service packs must be resolved with the operating system manufacturer.

 

The maintenance of the operating system and the system components is the responsibility of the customer. If errors within the BMD software are found, these must be resolved with BMD. Please note that new operating systems cannot be fully tested from their first moment of availability. When using a brand new operating system, please verify with BMD beforehand.
 

5. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS STAND-ALONE WORKSTATIONS

 

Both the database and the program operate on the same workstation.

 

5.1. Minimum Requirements

 

NTCS


>= Intel Core i3 v4
4 GB RAM

The existing resources must not fall below Windows requirements. 40 GB free hard drive space.

 

Required storage space*

The storage space requirements depend on the BMD product used and on the amount of user data.
However, at least 40 GB of free space is required.

For day-to-day operation, you will need enough storage space to allow for setting up a maintenance plan and backing up the database. The
required storage space is approximately the same as the current size of the database.

 

* These storage specifications also apply to the requirements in section 5.2.

 

5.2. Recommended System

 

NTCS


>= Intel Core i5 v5
>= 4 Cores
>= 2.4GHz base clock speed
>= 4 GB RAM

The existing resources must not fall below Windows requirements. 40 GB free hard drive space.

 

NTCS Power Users, especially when reporting is done, such as COAC or balance sheet processing. Reporting requires at least 4GB of memory, as most reports are processed in memory. This significantly increases the processing speed. Furthermore, we highly recommend to use a CPU with a core speed of >= 3GHz, since it is a high core speed (not a greater number of cores) that is beneficial to the speed of BMD NTCS. The power-saving mode of the operating system must be configured to high performance.

 

6. NETWORK REQUIREMENTS

 

If the BMD software is used over a network, only the network protocol TCP/IP must be set up. Other protocols are not recommended or supported by BMD. Errors caused by network protocols must be resolved with the vendor of this protocol (usually the operating system manufacturer).

The cabling of the network and other network components must be in an error-free state to guarantee full functionality of the BMD software. Errors due to cabling or network components have to be resolved with the manufacturer of the product (please contact the supplier).

BMD NTCS requires a stable connection between the database server and the client. Connection bandwidth must be 100Mbit or higher. A 1Gbit connection between the clients and the server is recommended.

 

The BMD software cannot be operated over a WAN or VPN route. In this case, a Remote Desktop connection and a Remote Desktop server are required. Furthermore, operation via W-LAN is not recommended, because BMD software cannot reconnect in the event of a network interruption.

 

7. PRINTER REQUIREMENTS

 

Generally, all printers working under Windows should also work with BMD NTCS, as the software uses the Windows print function (Windows spooler). Therefore, as a general rule, if the printer works correctly in Windows, it will also work with BMD.

 

Printers with an integrated print processor should be used. Printers requiring a so-called "host based Driver" are not recommended. In this case, the complete processing of the printout is done by the workstation. Under Terminal Server, such printers cannot be used at all.

 

8. GENERAL INFORMATION

 

If the BMD software runs on a Remote Desktop server, the color depth must be set to at least 16 bits. Otherwise, the UX icons from the Remote Desktop server are scaled down to fewer colors resulting in suboptimal image quality.
Printers cannot be used without a dedicated print processor on a Remote Desktop server.

 

BMD offers an additional number of documents to assist with installation. These can be found on the BMD installation medium or on the BMD website. Please refer to these documents as well, as they provide additional recommendations and tips.
 

Remarks on Memory in General:
In order to work efficiently with the BMD software, it is imperative that enough free memory is available. In some cases, workstations or servers would have enough memory, but it is reserved or in use by third-party applications. Therefore, system requirements are always dependent on the software configuration, the expected load and the third-party applications installed on a workstation or on the server.

 

9. DATABASE/OPERATING-SYSTEM VERSIONS SUPPORTED BY BMD NTCS

 

9.1. NTCS Multi-user version

 

CAUTION!
Setup of BMD NTCS automatically installs SQL 2017 if the system requirements are met. If the prerequisites are not met, SQL 2014 is installed.


Database/operating-system versions supported by BMD NTCS
(Both the 32 (if available) and 64 bit versions of the corresponding operating systems and databases are supported by BMD. It is recommended to use the 64 bit version.)
