Minimum requirements

  • .NET Framework 4.6 (Gateway release August 2019 and earlier)
  • .NET Framework 4.7.2 (Gateway release September 2019 and later)
  • A 64-bit version of Windows 8 or a 64-bit version of Windows Server 2012 R2
  • 4 GB disk space for performance monitoring logs (in default configuration)

Recommended

  • An 8-core CPU
  • 8 GB of memory
  • A 64-bit version of Windows Server 2012 R2 or later
  • Solid-state drive (SSD) storage for spooling.

Related considerations

  • Gateways aren’t supported on Server Core installations.
  • The user installing the gateway must be the admin of the gateway.
  • The gateway can’t be installed on a domain controller.
  • If you’re planning to use Windows authentication, make sure you install the gateway on a computer that’s a member of the same Active Directory environment as your SQL Server.
  • Don’t install a gateway on a computer, like a laptop, that might be turned off, asleep, or disconnected from the internet. The gateway can’t run under any of those circumstances.
  • If a gateway uses a wireless network, its performance might suffer.
  • You could install other applications on the gateway machine, but this may degrade gateway performance. If you do install other applications on the gateway machine, be sure to monitor the gateway closely to check if there’s any resource contention.
  • You can install up to two gateways on a single computer: one running in personal mode and the other running in standard mode. You can’t have more than one gateway running in the same mode on the same computer.
