Installing eB 15.6.1 on windows 2012 Server

Hi all ! We have a client which is in an upgrade process from eb14 to eB15. This client want to install eB on a windows 2012 server, so we started a testing process.

The application Server installed correctly without errors as well as the Web server. But the first problem occurred when i was trying to create a new DB using Oracle Client (11g r2). In this case the Oracle client does not appear in the database selection window despite of the client is working OK and the connection to the database too. When i used SQL database everithing worked OK.

The second problem occurred when i tried to setup a new eB Website with eB Web Manager, in the second i clicked the icon an error poped up saying that can´t find a DLL (see attached file)

I know that eB15.6.1 is not officcially supported on windows 2012 but we need to test it based on the client request. Any help with both problems will be appreciated.

Many thanks in advanced.

Ezequiel.

  • Since eB 15.6 is not officially supported on Windows Server 2012, if the user encounters problems, they will need to show those problems also exist on Windows Server 2008 in order for Bentley to investigate further.  I would highly recommend not trying to do a production deployment on Windows Server 2012 until eB is certified on that environment.

  • Dont think there is any chance of getting the web to work on IIS8 which is what you have on 2012... i tried and gave up.

    Was hoping that 15.6.1 would fully support 2012 and SQL 2012 but I guess we will have to wait for v16

  • I think we will have to wait....The problem is that we have to tell to our client that eB 15.6.1 is not supported on windows 2012, and that they will have to install it on windows 2008 (our client infrastructure department won´t be happy).
