5 | Page

l

IIS 7.5

l

IIS 7

Microsoft Message Queue (MSMQ) Bluebeam Studio Enterprise requires the installation of MSMQ.

SMTP Email Server Bluebeam Studio Enterprise requires access to an email account on a SMTP server that will be used to send email Session invitations and other communications to Session hosts and attendees. Studio Enterprise requires the following information: l

SMTP Email server address

l

SMTP Email server's outgoing port

l

Email address for Studio Enterprise

l

Password for the email account

l

The reply-to email address for email sent from the Studio Enterprise

Firewall Configuration Firewall settings for both Studio Enterprise and the Bluebeam Revu clients need to be configured to ensure proper connectivity to one another. The Studio Enterprise requires the following firewall settings to be configured: l

SQL Server1

l

SMTP Email Server1

l

HTTPS on IIS2

l

Network Discovery to confirm that other machines can access it2

l

The Bluebeam.Studio.Service.exe listens in on port 7398 and opens connections on other ports; therefore, it must be a trusted program in your firewall configuration2

Certificate Requirements and Deployment Bluebeam Studio Enterprise and Revu clients use SSL certificate-based authentication to encrypt the data connection. All Revu clients are required to have a certificate installed that allows them to authenticate Studio Enterprise. Likewise, Studio Enterprise requires that certificate to operate.

1

Must be configured manually.

2

Can be configured automatically if using Windows Firewall during the Studio Enterprise

installation process. Studio Enterprise: Installation & Configuration Guide Revised for Studio Enterprise 3.1

6 | Page

Studio administrators can set up a domain or wildcard certificate to configure Studio Enterprise. The installation process allows Studio administrators to create a self-signed certificate on the fly. Once the certificate has been created, the certificate may be distributed to individual workstations either via Group Policy or manual installation.

Hardware Requirements Hardware requirements are based on a number of factors, including the expected number of simultaneous Studio Sessions, the number and size of PDF files for Studio Sessions, the size and number of markups in Studio Sessions, and the size and number of Studio Projects. It is recommended that you consult with Bluebeam technical support if you would like assistance estimating the anticipated usage of Studio when defining hardware.

Processor Bluebeam Studio Enterprise is supported on 64-bit architecture environments. For the best performance, it is recommended to run Studio Enterprise on at least a 64-bit dual core architecture or better.

RAM For 64-bit architecture Operating Systems, at least 8 GB of RAM is recommended.

Disk Space Since Bluebeam Studio Enterprise can be installed on one machine and the database installed on another machine, there are two sets of Disk Space requirements:

Database Disk Space Requirements It is estimated that users will need at least 100 GB of disk space for the database; however, the disk space requirement depends on the size of the files and markups that occupy the database.

Studio Enterprise Disk Space Requirements It is recommended that the machine that Studio Enterprise is installed on has at least 100 GB of space available.

Network Network connections tend to be the main bottleneck impacting Bluebeam Studio's performance. It is recommended that the server running Bluebeam Studio Enterprise be connected via a gigabit network.

Installing and Configuring the Prerequisites Configuring Microsoft SQL Server The Microsoft SQL Server requirements for the Bluebeam Studio Enterprise are summarized below: l

l

Bluebeam Studio Enterprise requires a SQL Server account with the following permissions: l

Create Databases

l

Create/Drop Tables

l

Create/Drop Indexes

l

Create/Drop Foreign Key Constraints

l

Create/Retrieve/Update/Delete Records

The SQL browser service must be enabled and configured properly if the database will be located on a different machine other than Bluebeam Studio Enterprise.

The remainder of this section describes the installation and configuration of a Microsoft SQL server 2008 R2. Other versions of SQL Server are supported; refer to Configuring Microsoft SQL Server for more details. For further details and reference related to the installation and configuration of SQL Server, refer to the appropriate Microsoft documentation available on the Microsoft website.

Installing a New Instance of SQL Server When installing SQL Server for the first time, it is possible to configure it for Bluebeam Studio Enterprise by adhering to the following suggestions: 1. Load the SQL Server installer, click Installation on the left and then click New installation or add features to an existing installation on the right.

Studio Enterprise: Installation & Configuration Guide Revised for Studio Enterprise 3.1

8 | Page

2. Follow the instructions on the install wizard until reaching the Feature Selection page. This page allows users to select the feature Database Engine Services—the primary module that runs the SQL Server. Users may also choose to install the Management Tools, which includes SQL Server Management Studio. Installing SQL Server Management Studio is not a requirement for Bluebeam Studio Enterprise, but it can prove to be a useful tool when administering a SQL Server database.

Studio Enterprise: Installation & Configuration Guide Revised for Studio Enterprise 3.1

9 | Page

3. Continue through the wizard until reaching the Instance Configuration page. This page configures the SQL Server Instance name used to identify the database management system. If users choose Default Instance, then the installer will automatically specify the name MSSQLSERVER.

Studio Enterprise: Installation & Configuration Guide Revised for Studio Enterprise 3.1

10 | Page

4. Continue through the wizard until reaching the Database Engine Configuration page. This page configures the Authentication Mode. Make sure to select Mixed Mode. It will then ask users to specify a password for the “sa” user account. This page also requires that a Windows user account be specified for the SQL Server Administrator. The account specified will gain access to SQL Server using Windows Authentication.

Studio Enterprise: Installation & Configuration Guide Revised for Studio Enterprise 3.1

11 | Page

5. Continue through with the rest of the installation. Keep track of the name of the machine hosting the server, the database instance name and the password for the “sa” account. These pieces of information will be requested during the Bluebeam Studio Enterprise installation process.

Configuring an Existing Instance of SQL Server If SQL Server has already been installed, it will need to be configured so Bluebeam Studio Enterprise can connect to it. This section can be used as a guide to configure a SQL Server database that only uses Windows Authentication into one that uses Mixed Mode Authentication. If the state of SQL Server is unknown, this section can also be used to verify that SQL Server is configured properly for Bluebeam Studio Enterprise. 1. The best way to update SQL Server from an unknown state is to log in to the machine hosting it and connect with Windows Authentication1 .

Once SQL Server restarts, administrators will be able to connect using SQL Server Authentication and the “sa” account. Try logging into SQL Server Management Studio using the “sa” account as a quick test to verify that it has been set up correctly.

Configuring a SQL Server's Accessibility Bluebeam Studio Enterprise and the SQL Server do not need to run on the same server hardware. It is possible to have a dedicated SQL Server machine and a separate dedicated Studio Enterprise machine. However, this configuration requires that SQL Server be configured to allow remote connections. The Windows tool compmgmt.msc can configure the SQL Server Browser to allow remote connections. 1. Run compmgmt.msc. The Computer Management tool appears. 2. Go to Services and Applications > SQL Server Configuration Manager > SQL Server Network Configuration and Protocols and double-click TCP/IP.

Studio Enterprise: Installation & Configuration Guide Revised for Studio Enterprise 3.1

Certificate Requirements and Deployment Bluebeam Studio Enterprise uses SSL to communicate securely with Bluebeam Revu clients. SSL uses certificate-based authentication, which requires that both the Studio Enterprise and the Revu client have access to the same certificate.

Using Existing, Self-Signed, Domain and Wildcard Certificates If a certificate is obtained from a trusted certificate authority, install the certificate onto the Local Machine's Personal store for the Bluebeam Studio Enterprise to be able to access it. This can be accomplished with the Microsoft Management Center (mmc.exe). Once it has been installed, the Bluebeam Studio Enterprise installer will allow users to select it.

Deploying Certificate Through Group Policy Please refer to the following external resources for a guide on deploying a self-signed certificate through user Group Policy. Microsoft provides an official method and additional resources, which are listed below for further assistance:

AD Integration

The AD Integration tab allows the Studio administrators to integrate their Studio Enterprise with their Active Directory domain controller. Before getting started: l

Set up an Active Directory account to be used as the Security Principal

l

Prepare an LDAP connection string

l

Ensure that the server is joined to the domain specified in the LDAP string

l

Have at least one Studio admin account ready to map to Active Directory

l

Ensure that the Security Principal Account is also on the same domain

l

Ensure that all users in Active Directory have the first name, last name and email address fields populated. Email addresses must be unique.

To configure the Active Directory integration settings: Studio Enterprise: Installation & Configuration Guide Revised for Studio Enterprise 3.1

48 | Page

1. Log into the Studio Enterprise Portal. 2. Select the AD Integration tab. 3. Configure the following settings, as needed: a. Authentication Mode: Choose from the following options: l

Mixed Mode Credentials: Both Studio and Active Directory credentials can be

l

used to access Studio Enterprise. Active Directory Credentials Only: Only Active Directory credentials can be used to access Studio Enterprise. Note: Until at least one administrator account has been mapped to Active Directory, Mixed Mode Credentials must be used. Once a valid administrator account has been properly mapped, Active Directory Credentials Only can be selected.

b. LDAP Connection String: Enter the desired LDAP connection string for your network. If you would like to use an OU restriction, add it here as part of your LDAP Connection String. l

If you wish to use AD groups, you will be able to select them on the next screen.

l

There is a known issue with LDAP queries on large sets of users: the Active Directory server might not paginate the results correctly, resulting in a display problem, if more than 1,000 users are returned. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977180/en-us for more information.

c. Domain Name: Enter the Active Directory domain. d. Security Principal Name: Enter or change the Security Principal. l

The Security Principal account is what Studio Enterprise uses to access your Active Directory server. It is strongly recommended that this account be one with a password that does not expire. If necessary, go to your Active Directory system and create a Security Principal account for Studio Enterprise (for example, "[email protected] ") to use as the Security Principal.

e. Security Principal Password: Enter the password for the Security Principal account. 4. Click Save Connection Settings. 5. To use Active Directory groups in addition to LDAP, select Use AD Groups and select the desired groups from the list below, then click Save Group Settings. l

When Active Directory groups are used, users must be in both the LDAP Connection String and at least one of the selected Active Directory groups in order to access the server.

6. After enabling Active Directory integration, you might want to map existing users to Active Directory accounts. This enables existing users with Studio accounts to continue to access their existing Sessions and Projects once they switch to Active Directory credentials. There are two ways to do this:

Studio Enterprise: Installation & Configuration Guide Revised for Studio Enterprise 3.1

49 | Page

a. Mapping users automatically: Click Auto-Map Users to automatically map users to Active Directory accounts with matching email addresses.
