Memory (RAM)

1 to 20 Users
21 to 50 Users

Note: The database server computer needs a minimum of 2 GB of RAM, plus 32 MB of RAM per active user (the estimated number of users concurrently connecting to the server at any one time). Inadequate memory reduces performance.

Initial Drive Space

Three times the size of the combined Juris and Jbills databases


LexisNexis requires that the Juris® database server be a separate device from any computer performing as a file and print server, domain controller, or Exchange server. This is particularly relevant with Small Business Server. Additional Juris installation information is available in the installation guides.

The Juris database does not need a dedicated database server if your firm has multiple applications using the same database engine. Additional applications/databases on the SQL Server may significantly increase the memory and processor requirements.

Remote Access

Citrix Metaframe

Because many customers choose to operate in a Citrix environment, we do provide some limited support in certain instances. LexisNexis limits support to the operation of the Juris products and does not include support for the installation, configuration, or administration of the remote environment components themselves.

Before we provide support for our software, we might require you to install it to a workstation connected to a local copy of the data that is outside the thin client environment. You need administrative rights to install software and/or need to have a qualified technician present on the support call. We address issues that we can reproduce in the current version of the Juris software in an environment that is fully supported. We do not address issues that occur only in the Citrix environment.

Note: Juris products are not thin client applications and require additional memory when you run the products on the server. You might need to purchase multiple servers to distribute the users and balance memory load. Remote technology requires specialized technical resources to install and configure. If you have difficulties with the setup, contact a CIC or the vendor for additional support.

Citrix Presentation Server

Citrix XenApp

Citrix Go to MyPC

Microsoft Terminal Server

Note: Juris version 2.5 and subsequent versions are supported. Problems that occur only in the WTS environment are treated as product defects and will be prioritized and addressed in the Juris software following normal defect resolution procedures. Juris verion 2.4 and prior versions are supported in a limited capacity. Problems that occur must be tested and reproduced in the network environment. We do not provide technical support for any issues that we cannot recreate outside the Terminal Server environment. For all supported versions, LexisNexis support is limited to operation of the Juris products and does not provide support for the installation, configuration, and administration of Terminal Server environments themselves.

Log Me In

Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection

Remote technology, like Citrix or Microsoft Remote Desktop, allows you to gain access to the Juris software, but it requires complex technical resources to install and configure. We provide limited support to assure there is a good connection to the SQL database. Juris Technical Support is not responsible for assisting with the configuration or troubleshooting of the remote access applications.

The Juris software is not supported over a WAN. Connecting to the Juris database over a WAN or VPN can result in serious latency or inoperable software. Servers must reside on the same physical network unless you use supported remote access technologies.

Additional Recommendations:

  • The Juris software requires Microsoft Excel for Office 2002 or greater on the workstation you use to print financial statements.
  • The Juris software requires a MAPI-compliant mail transport system to use the built-in email features.
  • We recommend that you use laser printers for all printing to get design-level performance, and we require them for check printing.
  • We strongly recommend access to the internet and to a recordable CD-R/DVD-R because it significantly enhances our ability to provide you support.
