The following hardware recommendations and software requirements should be installed before installing SmartPlant Markup Plus Server.

Minimum hardware requirements

  • DVD drive access, either locally or through a network connection

  • 1000 BaseT or higher network interface

Hardware sizing, especially for servers, depends on many factors such as the number of users per site and the size of the project, and other software that is running on the machine.

Additional hardware recommendations for file viewing

  • 500 MB free disk space for the %temp% folder locations of the user account running the Blazon Job Processor service (PDF generation, thumbnail)

  • 15 to 60 GB free disk space on drive C to cache non-Hexagon PPM files for viewing in the web clients

  • 5 GB of temporary disk space on drive C to process Microsoft office files for viewing

Supported operating system

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Standard or Datacenter edition

    • The Web Server (IIS) role must be installed on the server with the ASP.NET 4.x role service installed.

  • Microsoft Office 2013 or 2016 (32-bit) (required to perform the View and Markup command on Microsoft Office file formats in the SmartPlant Foundation Desktop Client or in the Web Client)
