Next a explanation
is given about the installation of e-Synergy as well the
configurations of the applications jobs, MS SQL Server Agent, Outlook Express and Excel. The application or
the SQL database server is setup from scratch when for example the server's hardware is replaced, when the
operating software is re-installed or when no e-Synergy environment is
been installed before.
Setting up the application server can be different for every company. When a
optimal performance is required of the SQL Database server than it might be
considerable to set up an application server for running the background job.
Otherwise running the background jobs on the SQL Database server would be
sufficient. The following list can be used to set up the application or SQL
Before the installation of e-Synergy is started
it is recommended that the server meets the following minimum software
