Preparing

Before we begin the installation process, please check all SCORCH requirements:

The minimum hardware & software:

  • Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, 2016 (Desktop Experience)
  • 2 GB of RAM.
  • 200MB of disk space
  • 2.1GHz dual-core CPU or faster

  • SQL Server Standard or Enterprise:
    • 2012 SP2
    • 2014
    • 2014 SP1

Active Directory

  • orcsvc – A service account to run all the Orchestrator components.
  • ORC Admins – A security group with all your Orchestrator administrators.

Firewall:

Since we’re installing all components (except the SQL Server) on the same server we only need to open the following port (I use 14332 from SQL Installation):

Source Destination Port
Orchestrator Server SQL Server TCP: 14332

 

If you’re planning on accessing the Orchestrator Console for other servers/PCs you will also need to open the following ports:

Source Destination Port
Client Orchestrator Server TCP: 81, 82

 

Other:

  • Silverlight 4 or 5 is required to view the Orchestrator Console.
