    Primary Site Server Installation Overview

    A SMS site server is the Windows server on which SMS 2.0 is installed and running. The SMS site server is the main access point between the SMS database and administrators. The SMS server manages the SMS site and component attributes.

    The SMS site server must be installed on a domain controller or on a member server. It cannot be installed on a stand-alone server. Before installing the primary site server, you should consider the factors listed here on server resource requirements:

    • Installing Windows, SMS and SQL Server on the same disk would typically depreciate performance, unless the logical disk is a RAID implementation. The site server running SMS must have a minimum of 1 GB disk space. For packages, you would need roughly four times the amount of disk space.

    • For large SMS sites that have multiple site systems and subsites, you need to ensure that the CPU does not become a processing bottleneck. You need to ensure that you have sufficient processing power when the site server runs SQL Server.

    • It is recommended that you monitor the Committed Bytes and Memory Page Reads/sec counters in Performance Monitor to ensure that you have sufficient RAM. If you constantly have a high Committed Bytes counter, you should consider increasing the RAM. Installing a SMS Primary Site Server

    SMS is reliant on the SQL Server and its database. All SMS services in a primary site utilize SQL Server to update and manage the site database. The performance of SMS is therefore directly impacted by the performance of SQL Server. Here, SMS performance would be determined by the following factors:

    • SQL Server performance.

    • SQL Server hardware capacity

    • SQL Server configuration settings

    • Network access between the site database server and the site server

    • SMS Provider location.

    The best possible performance is assured for SMS if SQL Server is installed solely for SMS. In addition to this, SMS performance is also maximized when the SMS site database and the computer for the SMS site server role exists on the same computer. The performance of SMS is also enhanced if the data and log devices reside on separate physical drives or on RAID arrays.

    It is recommended that you install SQL Server on a separate computer to the site server when the following conditions apply:

    • A dedicated computer cannot be used for the site server and SQL Server.

    • There is a fast reliable network connection between the site server computer and the site database computer.

    • SQL Server manages other databases.

    • The site runs mainly as a software distribution service.

    The hardware installation requirements listed below are a guideline for a typical site server deployment which has to support the main SMS functions, and roughly one hundred computers:

    • The production site server should be a computer specified on the Windows NT/Windows 2000 Server/Windows Server 2003 Hardware Compatibility List (HCL).

    • SMS, Windows NT/Windows 2000/Windows Server 2003, and SQL Server run on computers which include CISC based x86 or RISC based Alpha CPUs. The hardware requirements for the two systems differ to some extent.

    • One Pentium 133 processor is required to run a site server

    • 64 MB of RAM is the minimum RAM requirement for a site server which contains a dedicated SQL Server. 128 MB of RAM should be assigned for a site server that supports about 100 client computers.

    • Approximately 500 MB of disk space is typically required for a Windows NT Server version 4.0 (SP4), SQL Server version 7.0 and a SMS site server installation. The size of the site database and software metering database are excluded from figure though. Packages require additional hard disk space.

    The software requirements are relevant to each site server installation.

    • Site servers have to be installed on Windows NT Server version 4.0 (SP4), Windows NT Server version 4.0 Enterprise Edition, or Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003.

    • The disk partition used for the SMS source files must be NTFS formatted partitions.

    • Internet Explorer 4.01 or above has to be installed to use the SMS Administrator console and the help features.

    When you install SMS, the default configuration is that all SMS roles are installed on an SMS site server:

    • Logon points: This is a SMS site system that is the initial connection point between a SMS site and client computer. Functions performed by logon points include the collection of discovery information on the client, determines the site assignment of the client and passes the client a list of client access points (CAPs).

    • Client access points (CAPs): This is a SMS site system that operates as the exchange point between SMS clients and the SMS site server. At the CAP; inventory, and status information and discovery information is gathered. Advertisement information can be retrieved from the CAP.

    • Distribution points: This is a SMS site system that installs the following components which deal with running a package at a SMS client computer: Package files, Programs, and Scripts.

    • Software metering servers: This is a SMS site system which enables administrators to perform a number of management activities: Grant/deny licenses for applications running on an SMS client; Monitor and track application usage on SMS clients; and Restrict application usage on SMS clients.

    How the SMS databases are created

    Microsoft SQL Server stores the SMS data. SQL Server can be installed before you install SMS or it can be installed when you install SMS. If you choose to install SQL Server with the installation of SMS, the SMS Setup program creates the databases that it needs. When you create the SQL Server databases during the SMS installation process; SMS logs on to SQL Server to create the databases. It uses SQL Server accounts to create and modify the databases. The method that SMS utilizes to access SQL Server is determined by the SQL Server logon method that is configured.

    The SMS Setup program creates the SQL Server database device files, which contains the following components:

    • Tables; store the data.

    • Statements; compiled sets of SQL statements

    • Views; for displaying data.

    • Indexes; for finding data.

    The following SMS databases are created with the installation of SMS components:

    • When you install a primary site server, the SMS site database is created.

    • When you enable SMS software metering, the SMS software metering database is created.

    These two databases use the following types of data files:

    • Primary data file; contains the SMS data.

    • Transaction log file; contains database modification information.

    Because SMS uses the time settings of SQL Server for task scheduling, you should ensure that the time settings of the SMS site server and SQL Server are synchronized.

    After SMS is installed, the necessary management data is written to the databases. You can utilize either of the following methods to access the databases:

    • WBEM application access: The SMS Administrator console provides database access through the WBEM layer and SMS Provider layer. The rights of the user as specified by Windows 2000/Windows Server 2003 domain user account and Windows 2000/Windows Server 2003 group membership determines what access is allowed to the WBEM objects.

    • SMS service account access: The SMS services use the SMS service account to collect data from the site systems. SQL Server manipulates the site database.

    • Software metering service account access: The SQL Server account manipulates the software metering database for the software metering service account.

    How to configure SQL Server for SMS

    The SQL Server configuration settings listed below can be tuned for SMS operations. You should as far as possible set maximum values for the SQL Server configuration parameters so that the assigned resources can be increased/decreased as necessary:

    • Memory; you can configure SQL Server to dynamically assign RAM for SQL Server functions so that it dynamically shrinks or grows its memory utilization.

    • User Connections; user connections provide access to SQL Server. One user typically needs 40 KB of RAM on a SQL Server computer. When you install SMS, the user connections listed here are used:

      • SMS Administrator console access nodes

      • SMS service operations

    • Open objects; these objects affect how much tables, stored procedures, triggers, etc; can be open. Because open object assignment is handled dynamically, you do not need to manually configure it.

    • Locks; this SQL Server parameter is also self configuring and does not need to be manually specified.

    • Primary data file;

      • For the SMS site database, the primary data file must be over 50 MB. The primary data file must also have 100 KB storage space for each SMS client computer.

      • For the software metering database, the primary data file must be over 10 MB. The primary must have 200 KB storage space for each client computer that has the Software Metering Client Agent installed.

    • Transaction log device file;

      • For the SMS site database, the transaction log device file must be over 20 percent of the associated primary database file.

      • For the software metering database, the transaction log device file must be over 15 percent of the associated primary database file.

    • Temporary database; contains the temporary tables and stored procedures and is included in the master database. For the primary data file, the temporary database size should roughly be 20 percent of your total device files.
