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).
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
