This appendix covers important considerations regarding the use of Metasys system software on Windows Server operating systems.

Release 10.0 of the Metasys system supports the following server operating systems: Windows 2016 (64-bit), Windows Server 2012 R2 with Update 1 (64-bit), and Windows Server 2012 (64-bit).

Important: We strongly advise that you do not use a computer running a Windows server class operating system to manually browse to the Metasys Site Management Portal UI. By default, Windows Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is enabled on server class operating systems and may block the Launcher download page from which you install the Launcher application for access to the Site Management Portal. Open the Site Management Portal UI from a computer that is not running a server-class operating system. See Internet Explorer enhanced security configuration.
