Using OSSV to backup an IA64 server

[ Edited ]

Is there a way to backup a IA64 Windows 2003 server using OSSV?  Have tried using the 64 bit version and it errorred out with the msg "processor type not supported".  Installed and ran the 32 bit version but it fails to back up.  Any ideas?

Hi,

Do you mean Itanium-based machine by saying IA64, not a 'standard' 64-bit machine (which should be described as x64)?

The former is not supported by OSSV, the latter should work fine.

Yes I meant Itanium.

So any idea if they will ever be able to be backed up by OSSV?

I have no insight whatsoever into OSSV development plans and/or roadmaps, but just guessing - I seriously doubt it will ever support IA64.

Itanium is simply too low in numbers on the market in my opinion:

According to Gartner Inc., the total number of Itanium servers sold by all vendors in 2007 was about 55,000. This compares with 417,000 RISC servers (spread across all RISC vendors) and 8.4 million x86 servers.
