Microsoft Dynamics GP System Specs and Hardware Requirements Cheat Sheets

Email | Print

What do you need to make Microsoft Dynamics GP run on premise?

Here are some handy reference guides that you can always find at

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 System Requirements
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 System Requirements
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 System Requirements
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 System Requirements
Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client System Requirements
Management Reporter System Requirements

These documents contain the minimum client hardware requirements, server recommendations and Terminal Server minimum hardware requirements supported by the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Support Team. Microsoft says, “The server recommendations are not minimum server requirements. The requirements and recommendations are based on experience with many different installations. Users may need to increase these requirements due to environmental factors to achieve individual performance expectations.”

Note: Costs for SQL Server have increased dramatically in the past couple years/versions and continue to move to a per-core-centric model. At CAL Business Solutions we encourage clients to opt into the Runtime SQL Licensing offered by Microsoft if you are not already invested in Microsoft Open Licensing.

Upgrading your hardware or other licensing can be a big investment. When faced with this decision, some companies choose to move Microsoft Dynamics GP into the cloud.
