Supported Operating Systems

The tables in this section outline the supported operating systems, by operating system version, for each MOM 2005 SP1 component. There are two tables for each operating system version; each table outlines support for a different set of MOM components.

Note

    There are known issues related to running MOM components on a 64-bit computer. The MOM 2005 Web console and MOM Connector Framework (MCF) require ASP.NET 1.1, which is a 32-bit application. Even if ASP.NET 1.1 is installed on a 64-bit computer, you must configure IIS 6.0 to run in 32-bit mode.

IIS 6.0 supports both 32-bit mode and 64-bit mode. However, IIS 6.0 does not support running both modes at the same time on a 64-bit version of Windows.

For more information about configuring IIS to run 32-bit ASP.Net applications and running 32-bit applications on 64-bit Windows (IIS 6.0), refer to the following KB article:
