Here, we sum up all the Prerequisites you need to solve before starting with the au2mator Setup.


Server Environment

  • Windows Server 2019 or higher
    • you can run au2mator on Server 2016, but some modules (ActiveDirectory) are incompatible with PowerShell Core when you use it with PowerShell.
    • Entire Server 2022 Support with 4.6

  • at least two core CPU, 8 GB RAM, and 64GB SSD Disk

  • As Browser, we recommend using Microsoft Edge (Chromium), Firefox, and Chrome. Internet Explorer is not supported.

  • .Net Hosting Bundle
    • au2mator is using the .Net Hosting Bundle to run the IIS App.
    • Our Setup takes care that other .Net Hosting Bundles are uninstalled
    • Sometimes, a problem can occur with older .Net Hosting Bundles installed
    • To be sure, please uninstall all .Net Hosting Bundles before starting au2mator Setup.

  • SQL Server 2014 or higher

Service Account

To run the IIS Application Pool, we need a User. Make sure the User has the following Permissions.

  • Local Admin on the au2mator Server
    • Ensure the "Service Account" has "Logon as Service" and "Logon locally" rights.
  • DB_CREATOR (or Sysadmin) on the SQL Server
    • DB_CREATOR is only needed during the Setup
    • Alternatively, you can create an empty DB on the SQL
      • Then, please add the "Service Account" DB_OWNER to the database.
  • System Center Orchestrator Admin
    • When using au2mator with SCO, ensure the "Service Account" is an Orchestrator Admin.

Service Groups

We need one Group to define au2mator Admins. So please create a Group and put the "Service Account" and your Admin User in that Group.
The Group is needed during the Setup.
