The KPI Server Manager allows you to install and configure the Visual KPI Server. When you download and install the Visual KPI Server, the Server Manager is installed at the same time.
Ideally, you should install the Visual KPI Server on a Windows Server 2012 R2 running in a virtual machine.
Getting your machine ready
Before you can install the Visual KPI Server and Server Manager, you’ll need to confirm you have the prerequisites installed and the correct permissions enabled.
Please don’t skip this step. Once your machine is ready to go, the Visual KPI Server installation will take mere seconds. Otherwise, you’ll have to stop, get your machine ready, and start again.
