Right Click Tools System Requirements

Hardware and software requirements for installing and best utilizing Right Click Tools.

Basic System Requirements & Permissions

These basic pre-requisites must be met when installing Right Click Tools with Recast Management Server or Right Click Tools Standalone.


  • Functional Configuration Manager console
  • Operating System: Microsoft-supported versions of Windows 10 and later


  • The user running the action in the Configuration Manager console must have Local Administrator permissions on the target device.

NOTE: If Local Admin access to devices is not allowed for certain users, you'll need to install Right Click Tools with Recast Management Server and use either a Recast Proxy or a Recast Agent to run actions. For more information, see Access Denied.

Recast Management Server Requirements

Additional pre-requisites for installing Right Click Tools with Recast Management Server.

Before installing Recast Management Server, ensure that your system meets the following hardware and software requirements:



4-core minimum, more when Recast Agents are deployed

 Agents Deployed CPU
 < 10K 4-core minimum, 8-core preferred
 10K – 20K 8-core minimum, 12-core preferred
 > 20K 8-core minimum, 12-core preferred, with an additional Agent Gateway required on a different server. CPU requirements for each additional Agent Gateway server will depend on the number of Agents connected.

Agent Gateway Servers

One Agent Gateway is required for every 20K Recast Agents deployed. An Agent Gateway is automatically deployed during Recast Management Server installation. Each additional Agent Gateway must be installed on a different server.

 Agents Deployed Agent Gateways
 < 20K 1
 > 20K 2 (+ 1 for every additional 20K Agents deployed)


At least 8 GB

SQL Server 

At least 20GB of free space is required, in addition to your normal Windows installation. More space is required if setting up trends and taking snapshots. 100GB is a good starting place for teams planning to maximize trends utilization.


Operating System: Microsoft Windows Server 2016 or later

Microsoft .NET Framework: ASP.NET version 6.0 or later


NET Core Hosting Bundle: The Recast Management Server will install this, if it is not present. Install the Hosting Bundle after IIS.

SQL: Use any licensed version of SQL. If you don't have permission to create a SQL database during the install, you can pre-create the SQL database.
