Before beginning an installation of Smart 3D, verify that your servers meet the following hardware recommendations and software requirements.

Applicable Hardware

  • Database server

  • File server

Hardware Recommendations

  • Intel Xeon® 5600 Series or better (64-bit instruction set, not Itanium®)

  • 32 GB to 128 GB or greater RAM depending on project size

  • For hard drive size, see Smart 3D Project Hardware Sizing Recommendations

  • Backup system for server

  • Access to DVD drive, either locally or through a network connection

  • 1 GbE or higher network interface for client connections, latency should be less than 1 ms between client and database server

Supported Operating Systems

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016 (Standard or Enterprise) running on a Windows Active Directory domain

  • Oracle Linux 7 (Oracle database only)

Supported Database Servers

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2016 (Standard edition for stand-alone environments; Enterprise edition for Global Workshare environments; 64-bit)

  • Oracle Database 12c Release 2 ( Enterprise or Standard Edition 2 (64-bit)

    • If you are going to use Oracle in a Global Workshare configuration, you also need Oracle GoldenGate, which is separately purchased from Oracle.

    • Oracle Linux 7 does not support a Global Workshare configuration.

There are internationalization considerations concerning the SQL Server collation settings you specify that relate to reference data, using SmartPlant Enterprise integrated systems, Global Workshare Configuration, multiple locales, backup/restore, reports, and upgrading to future releases. Please contact Customer Support for specific configuration questions.

  • Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 6.0 SP1 (Database server only)

  • Microsoft .NET 4.6 or later

  • For more information on hardware requirements, see Smart 3D Project Hardware Sizing Recommendations.

  • For information on disk space usage and determining RAID configuration, see Disk Usage.

  • For specifications regarding minimum hard drive disk space requirements by the product setup, see Disk Partitioning Guidelines.

  • On the server, distribute files across several disk drives with the following minimum distribution: operating system and database software on one drive, database data files on another drive, and the database log file on the third drive.

  • Ensure that your system's security certificates are updated prior to installation.

  • Microsoft and Oracle will enforce the Internet Host Table Specification RFC 952 which mandates that component hostname labels can contain only alphanumeric characters. Host names using underscores (‘_’) are not allowed. Refer to Oracle Support Articles 1603775.1 and 1957895.1 and Microsoft KB 101785.
