This section describes the software and hardware requirements to run IDOL.
To install IDOL services on Microsoft Windows operating systems, you must run the IDOL Server installer as a user with administrative privileges.
You do not require special privileges to run the IDOL Server installer on Linux or Solaris operating systems, or to run IDOL Server on any platform.
You cannot run IDOL with restricted file system permissions (for example: disk quotas, file handle limits or memory limits).
Your file system must permit file locking (for example, you cannot run IDOL on an NFS mount).
Your network must support TCP/IP.
If you are running anti-virus software on the machine hosting IDOL server, ensure it does not monitor the IDOL Server directories, which can have a serious impact on IDOL Server performance.
In addition some advanced anti-virus software can scan the network and might block some IDOL traffic, which can cause errors. Where possible, exempt the IDOL processes from this kind of network traffic analysis.
IDOL runs on a variety of Windows and UNIX platforms. For details of supported platforms, refer to the IDOL 11.5 Release Notes.
HPE recommends the following minimum hardware specifications for IDOL Server.
a dedicated SCSI disk
4 GB RAM
100 GB Disk
a minimum of 2 dedicated CPU - Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron or above
