The UiPath Installation and Upgrade Guide

Hardware and Software Requirements

🚧

Important

Please note that this is a change from our HW/SW specs from Insights 2021.10. Insights 2021.10 requires a single Windows machine, while Insights 2022.10 requires a Windows machine and a Linux machine with RHEL 8.2-8.6, or 9.0.

In 2021.10, the Insights Windows machine ran Docker which hosted the Looker Linux container. Starting with Windows 2022, the driver used to nest the Linux containers in Windows OS (called lcow) is not supported anymore by Microsoft for enterprise applications. As a result, we had to change our deployment architecture to require two machines - one Windows machine to run the UiPath Insights components, and a Linux machine to run the Looker container. With this change, enterprise support is available from OS vendors for the components needed to run UiPath products. The supported versions of Linux OS are the same that Automation Suite supports.

Hardware Requirements

These requirements are only applicable to the machine where Insights is installed.

Insights Windows Machine

🚧

Important!

Insights must be installed on its own machine; it cannot be co-hosted with Orchestrator.

Insights Linux Machine

The following table lists the hardware requirements for hosting the Insights Linux Machine.

For air-gapped environments, make sure that the following volumes have enough available space:

  • /home: over 4Gb.
  • /var: over 10GB.

📘

Note:

Make sure that the hostnames for both the Insights Windows Machine and the Insights Linux Machine are resolvable within your DNS.

SQL Requirements

📘

Note:

For best performance, consider hosting the Insights database on a dedicated machine. If you currently have a Small-Scale deployment or are evaluating Insights, you might have both Orchestrator and Insights databases on the same machine. If you start noticing performance issues, you can move the Insights database to a dedicated machine.

If you require over 200 million rows, contact your UiPath representative.

Software Requirements

🚧

Important!

Your Orchestrator and Insights products must be of the same version (e.g., v2022.10.0).

Operating System

SoftwareCompatible Version
Windows Machine2019

📘

Note:

  • Insights requires the SQL Server to have support for columnstore index and .json functions.

  • For Azure SQL, ensure the database is S3 tier or above.

  • Make sure the compatibility level for Insights database is set to 150 or higher ("SELECT compatibility_level from sys.databases WHERE name = '{dbName}'). In most cases, the default settings meet this requirement. For more information, refer to View or Change the Compatibility level of a Database - SQL Server.
