creating another dialog instance on different windows version
We have our main instance on a 32bit windows 2000 with sql2000. We want to add a secondary instance on another server, it'll be on a virtual vmware server. Can this new instance run on a 64bit windows 2003? Without making any changes on the 32but windows 2000 instance?
as long as the second plattform is also supported for the product you want to install, this is not a problem at all.
It is even possible to have a completely mixed system landscape where some application servers are on unix and some on linux. As long as all platforms that you use are supported for the product, it will work.
For platform-support questions please lookup your product and platforms in the Product availability matrix to see if you configuration is supported. You can find it under:
