These notes provide important information about installation and upgrade requirements for Team Server installer which includes Repository. You should read this document in its entirety before any install, upgrade, or uninstall procedure.

Notepad blue icon 2.pngNote: We also recommend that appropriate staff from your organization are involved. Team Server has a number of components and features which are non-trivial and may fall under the best practice and/or governance policies, standards and controls of your organization. Team Server has the following elements that may require consideration:

  • Server Platform. May require your infrastructure team to provide with appropriate operating systems and install privileges.
  • The database runs on Oracle or Microsoft SQL server. This may require involvement of your data architecture and/or Database Administration team.
  • Web Application Server. Although the installer will perform much of the work in installing the Tomcat application server installation of https certificates may be required from your web or infrastructure team and security policies may apply.
  • Authentication. Team Server can be connected with your existing Active Directory which will need approvals and information from your infrastructure team and support to configure Team server
  • Team Server email notifications. This will require SMTP details and support from your infrastructure team.

If you have problems or questions you should contact the Idera support team at https://www.embarcadero.com/support

System Requirements

Before installing or upgrading Team Server and Repository, verify that your environment meets the hardware and operating system requirements. Adhering to these requirements optimizes performance. These hardware requirements are based on a 5-10 user environment.

Magic Wand Icon.pngTip: For more than 10 users, ensure your hardware surpasses the previously-stated hardware requirements to accommodate the number of transactions that increase as the number of users increases.


Warning.gif WARNING: If upgrading an existing installation on the same application server, do not uninstall the previous version. The new version will back up the data from the previous version and restore it as part of the new Team Server/Repository installation procedure. This procedure allows published diagrams and workspaces to remain published after upgrade.
