I am finalizing a machine before acquiring Indesign server. The requirements say CD ROM drive and Graphics card is required on Server machine. I intend to use it only for generating the documents programatically, not for writing the documents. IS it really required that I have CD ROM and graphics card on server? I am looking for a cloud installation and do not have access to CD ROM drive. Would anyone know?
No. You do not need a CD ROM Drive.
I don't think the graphics card is necessary either, but I'm not sure about that.
