Before upgrading the system, it is strongly recommended that you archive the historical data and back up the EcoStruxure BMS servers to preserve the current data and configurations. If you plan to upgrade WebReports, be sure to back up the Reports database in SQL Server.
The basic WebReports components are a web browser, the Reports Server (running WebReports and prerequisite software), the Enterprise Server (running WorkStation) and (optionally), one or more SmartX servers.
Use the Features dialog box to select the .NET Framework 3.5 and .NET Framework 4.x features for installation. The features are required for the WebReports installation, and it is recommended that you install the services before you install SQL Server.
EcoStruxure Building Operation WebReports is installed using an installation package. Before you install WebReports, you must ensure that the computer on which you want to install WebReports (the Reports Server) meets the hardware and software requirements for WebReports, and that you have installed or enabled certain prerequisite items of software. These requirements are covered in the installation workflow (introduced in this topic).
