The Report Server retains the software and hardware inventory information scanned from Student machines. If it is installed in combination with LanSchool v9.0 Classroom Management software, inventory information from Teacher machines is also captured.
Report Server Requirements
The Report Server is a stand-alone install that includes a SQLite database and the ASP.NET web framework.
It may be installed on the same machine as the Windows Tech Console software, but only one install of the Report Server should be implemented.
Once installed, it “announces” its presence to all Tech Consoles available. It can be accessed by the Reports toolbar button on an individual Tech Console, or through a browser by its IP address.
The Report Server initially requires under 60MB of disk space to install, though additional space is needed as inventory is collected. The amount of disk space needed will vary depending on the number of machines in your environment.
The Report Server supports the following operating systems:
- 64-bit Windows 7, 8.1, 10, or 11
- Windows Server 2012, 2016 or higher
To support 10,000 users:
- Dedicated machine or virtual machine that is always up and running
- 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2, 2012, 2016 or higher
- Static IP Address
- 16GB RAM or greater
- 1GB Ethernet network adapter connected to a gigabit port on a switch
- HDD space will vary by size and growth rate (e.g. 50 GB is a good starting point)
- Requires port UDP 796 (broadcast discovery packet) to clients
Report Server Network Discovery
The discovery of the Report Server is done automatically and cannot be configured by the end user. The Report Server will broadcast on UDP 796 a packet containing the address of the Report Server.
In a peer to peer environment, the student will receive this packet and reply back to the Report Server on TCP 80.
In an environment using a LanSchool Connection Server (LCS), the LCS will receive this UDP packet and then relay it to the student clients via the higher dynamic port already allotted to the student connection. The student will then respond directly to the Report Server on TCP 80.
You can change the login credentials and add new users under the Users tab.
Data Update Frequency
- Inventory is updated every 24 hours.
- Banned words are updated on demand.
- Apps update every 30 seconds.
- Web history is updated as soon as the browser closes.
LanSchool Report Server Database
The LanSchool Report Server database is a standard SQLite database.
It is stored at C: \program files (x86)\LanSchool Report Server\reportServer.sqlite.
You can use any standard SQLite client to view the database. For example, DB Browser for SQLite works well and is freely available at http://sqlitebrowser.org. The single database file can be copied and shared, or backed up with any file backup tool.
