Setting Up Multi-user Environment

Multi-user Installation

Autopsy can be setup to work in an environment where multiple users on different computers can have the same case open at the same time. To set up this type of environment, you will need to configure additional (free and open source) network-based services.

Network-based Services

You will need the following that all Autopsy clients can access:

When you setup the above services, write down the addresses, user names, and passwords or each so that you can configure each of the client systems afterwards.

We recommend using at least 2 dedicated computers for this additional infrastructure. Spreading the services out across several machines can improve throughput. If possible, place Solr on a machine by itself, as it is the largest RAM and CPU utilizer among the servers.

Ensure that the central storage and PostgreSQL servers are regularly backed up.

Autopsy Clients

Once the infrastructure is in place, you will need to configure Autopsy to use them.
