.NET specific hints and common issues

General Questions:

1. Is it possible to install Nakisa and ECC in the same server?

Yes, it´s possible. However it´s necessary to take into account the traffic, performance, hardware, etc; for this server.

2. Is it possible to install Nakisa on a Virtual Machine?

Yes, it's possible if the requirements of Operating System and Software are respected. Also, the virtual resources must be aligned with the physical resources presented on the Installation Guide.

3. Is it possible to run more than one component of VSN on the same server without conflicts?

Yes, it is possible. There is no technical issue on running more than one component on the same server because each one of the Nakisa components have different installations and virtual directories and they will not conflict with each other. Although, the performance issue must be considered on running more than one service on the same server.

4. Is it possible to integrate the Nakisa components?

Yes, but only if they were installed inside a Portal. To integrate the Nakisa components, you can create Iviews that will contain these components. You can find more information on creating iViews on the following link: Creating Iviews.

5. What are the system requirements? the Master Guide for the system requirements. Consult the version for the Service Pack level you are deploying.

6. Where can I find information on upgrades?

There are a series of blog posts available on the upgrade process, considerations, etc.: Part 1 - Why Bother? | Part 2 - Preparing the Environment | Part 3 - Carrying Out the Upgrade.

Version 4.1 includes an upgrade document (VSN41_UpgradeGuide.pdf) that specifically lists some details about upgrading to that version.

ABAP add-on upgrade issues were present in upgrading to 4.0 SP1 (but this is no longer the latest version).

7. Can I access OrgChart on my mobile device?

The OrgHub for Mobile application is available from VSN 4.1 onwards.  This allows the OrgChart configuration to be accessed on an iOS device in a way that has been designed for mobile.
