System Requirements

Juniper Identity Management Service can be installed on the following Microsoft Windows platforms:

  • Windows Server 2019

  • Windows Server 2016

  • Windows Server 2012 R2 with Windows Server 2012 R2 Updates (KB2919355 and KB2999226)

Best Practice:

Note the following best practices when installing Juniper Identity Management Service on a Microsoft Windows platform:

  • Because Juniper Identity Management Service participates in the security infrastructure protecting your network, we recommend using Windows Update regularly and judiciously to obtain the latest Security Updates and other Critical Updates from Microsoft.

  • Juniper Identity Management Service requires a server with a 4-core, 64-bit compatible 1.4 GHz or higher CPU, a minimum of 16 GB of system memory, and 100 GB of disk space.


Juniper Identity Management Service uses the event log timestamp to decide the order of events, and, therefore, you might experience unexpected side issues if your domain controllers and Active Directories are not synchronized. This is more likely to happen across domains than within domains, which typically time-synchronize with their domain controller. Juniper Identity Management Service uses UTC (GMT) internally, and the time zone should not matter, only the time synchronization. See the Windows Time Service Tools and Settings documentation for Windows Server 2016 or 2012 R2.
