Follow the steps below to download and run the executable utility file to check Linux compatibility. This will generate a file outlining key metrics associated with your Windows deployment (such as storage utilization) and assist with determining the complexity of a possible migration from Windows to Linux. 

Please note that running the file on each of your Sisense environments is essential. Run the file on the build node if you have a multi-node environment. 

  1. Download the utility file:
  2. Right-Click & Run the utility as an Administrator on the Windows server where Sisense is installed.
  3. For a Multi-node environment, please run the utility on the server you are using as your build node.

The following are instructions on how to run programs on Windows via CMD: 

  • Open the Command Prompt (CMD) by typing "cmd" in the Windows search bar and selecting the "Command Prompt" app.
  • Navigate to the folder where the program is located by using the "cd" command. For example, if your program is located in the "C:\Programs" folder, type "cd C:\Programs" in the Command Prompt.
