Operations Manager on Windows 2003 64bit wow

Hello All,

Have anyone install operations manager on a windows 2003 OS run 64 bit. On the install/ upgrade guide it show OM is supported with wow enabled. Does any one have experience with WOW? Anything special or is it this like a  normal install?

thanks,

Daivd

Hi,

DFM Installation procedure on 64-bit windows 2003 is the same as installing DFM on a 32-bit Windows 2003.

The WOW64(Windows-32-on-Windows-64) is a subsystem that enables 32-bit programs to run without modification on the x64-based versions of Windows 2003. The WOW64 subsystem does this by creating a 32-bit environment on the x64-based versions of Windows 2003.

WOW64 is provided with the operating system and the DFM user does not have to worry about explicitly enabling WOW64.

Thanks,
