Windows Server 2008

Hard Drive

1 GB minimum of hard disk space for installing the software.

To calculate the disk space requirements for the job results directory, see Job Results Directory Disk Space Calculation.

500 MB of free disk space is required for log directory.

You must consider the size of the index cache while deciding on the required hard drive space for Search Service Application restore.

Also, allot an appropriate amount of temporary space in the Job Results folder to accommodate staging of the Site Collections and subsites.

For Databases, Job Results folder size should be twice the size of the largest service applications database size.

For Documents, Job Results folder size should be twice the size of the largest subsite.

For SharePoint Online, Job Results folder size should be twice the size of the largest subsite.

Note: UNC paths are also supported for job results directory by the SharePoint Server Agent.

When assigning UNC paths, the designated directory must be ONE level below the directory which is shared for this purpose.

Examples:

\\machine1\<share_name>\job_results\ is shared. Then specify \\machine1\<share_name>\job_results\job_results_1 as the job results directory.

\\machine1\<share_name>\job_results\ is shared. Then specifying \\machine1\<share_name>\job_results as the job results directory is not supported.

Processor

All Windows-compatible processors are supported.

Miscellaneous

The File System Agent is installed automatically during the installation of this software component (if it is not installed already). To review the system requirements of the File System Agent, see System Requirements - Microsoft Windows File System Agent.

.NET Framework

.NET Framework 4.0 is automatically installed. Note that .NET Framework 4.0 can co-exist with other versions of this software.

Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 is Automatically Installed

Starting in Service Pack 18, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 (vcredist2017.exe) is automatically installed. If a computer does not have the latest Windows updates, the installation of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 will fail in installing Universal C Runtime.

The following Windows updates must be installed to prevent the installation failure:

KB2919355

KB2939087

KB2975061

KB2999226

Updates are not required on latest Windows operating system versions, such as Microsoft Windows 10 and Microsoft Windows Server 2016, as these versions come with the Universal C Runtime already installed.

*Consideration for SharePoint Server 2016

For SharePoint Document backup set, we support only full backups. Incremental backups are not supported because incremental export of the site content is failing. We have opened a ticket with Microsoft to get this issue fixed. Ticket number is 116050914143126.

If you have to run incremental backups, you can upgrade to the SharePoint Server 2016 September cumulative update version.
