To Celiveo-enable a printer, you must connect the printer to a Celiveo Smart Appliance (CSA). HP Futuresmart printers don't require a CSA.
For small structures – less than 300 printers – which do not have SQL Server installed, Celiveo offers the possibility to install Microsoft SQL Server® 2016 Express.
However, for bigger structures or if you wish to use features such as High Availability, it is necessary to have a commercial version of Microsoft SQL Server®, adapted to your project needs.
If you already have an SQL Server on you can set up Celiveo to use that SQL Server.
