SentryOne Document Software
Note: Hardware requirements are workload-specific. The specs listed below are the minimum recommended.
If you're using SentryOne Document Software (the on-premises, self-hosted version), the hardware requirements are:
- 2 CPU cores
- 8+ GB RAM
- 40+ GB free storage space
Note: Hardware requirements are workload-specific. The specs listed below are the minimum recommended. As agent workloads do not benefit significantly from parallelization, one or two cores for each agent is recommended.
Remote Agent Hardware
- Recommend a relatively recent 64-bit processor, 8+ GB of RAM, and 20+ GB free storage space.
Remote Agent Software
- Windows PC with .NET 4.6.1 installed

Downloading Provider Files from Microsoft
Note: These instructions reference an external system from Microsoft and may appear differently than described below.
Download the additional provider requirements by completing the following steps:
1. Navigate to the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 SP4 Feature Pack.
2. Select the following additional files:
3. Select Next.
4. Select Download to install the selected components.
Success: You have now downloaded the additional provider requirements!
It's recommended that the machine running the remote agent has network access and permission to access all the solution items that you want to scan. See the Remote Agents article for additional recommendations about where to install them.
Note: SentryOne Document (the cloud version at document.sentryone.com) uses https://document-api.services.sentryone.com/ as the communication endpoint and port 443 for HTTPS. These will need to be allowed by your firewall.

Accessing SentryOne Document Solutions
The following script shows you how to grant the necessary permissions to users so that all server level objects, databases, associated database objects and SQL Server Agent objects can be read. This needs to be executed against any SQL Server that exists as a solution in SentryOne Document.
USE [master]; GO IF NOT EXISTS ( SELECT * FROM syslogins WHERE [name] = 'Domain\Account' ) CREATE LOGIN [Domain\Account] FROM WINDOWS WITH DEFAULT_DATABASE = [master]; GRANT VIEW SERVER STATE TO [Domain\Account]; GRANT VIEW ANY DEFINITION TO [Domain\Account]; GRANT CONNECT ANY DATABASE TO [Domain\Account]; GO USE [msdb]; GO CREATE USER [Domain\Account] FOR LOGIN [Domain\Account]; GO USE [msdb]; GO ALTER ROLE [SQLAgentOperatorRole] ADD MEMBER [Domain\Account]; GO
If the server hosting the solution also has SSIS and the solution contains SSIS items, then permissions must be granted for the SSISDB in addition to the SQL Server permissions above.
USE [SSSIDB]; GO CREATE USER [Domain\Account] FOR LOGIN [Domain\Account]; GO USE [SSISDB]; GO ALTER ROLE [SSIS_Admin] ADD MEMBER [Domain\Account]; GO
