Virtual Servers

Both VM Ware and Hyper-V are tested and supported. Document throughput maybe affected due to the nature of virtual machines. VM will distribute and divide the Network card, Hard Drive and Processor among the other VMs being supported by the physical server.

Antivirus Information

Typically antivirus must be configured to exclude the directory of the Reform software. This is because anti-virus applications may interfere with the software. For example, in some cases it may cause a service to take longer than expected to start. This could cause the service to time out and fail to start. Antivirus may lock temporary files to scan them while the files are in use by our application. This could cause sporadic issues such as delays or lost documents since files are not able to be processed when they are locked. There are two rules for best practices:

  1. The antivirus software should exclude the directory where the software is installed. (For Example: C:\Program Files\Reform…\)
  2. The firewall/antivirus should allow SMTP emails to be sent from the server
