What is changing?
Starting in the IBM Endpoint Manager 9.2 release, the IEM Server, Console and Web Reports components will only be supported on 64-bit operating systems. This is a change to our previously supported Windows platforms for these components to enable more effective use of system resources and functionality enhancements that have been blocked by 32-bit application limitations. Specifically, the following platform support is changing:
What is affected?
IEM Server (Windows 32-bit OS, Windows 2003 32- or 64-bit)
IEM Web Reports (Windows 32-bit OS, Windows 2003 32- or 64-bit)
IEM Console (Windows 32-bit OS, Windows XP/2003 32- or 64-bit)
New detection fixlets (ids 1830, 1831, 1832 and 1833) have been added to the BES Support site to assist in identifying any components running on unsupported platforms.
What is not affected?
IEM Server (RHEL)
IEM Web Reports (RHEL)
What action is needed?
Deployments with affected components should not upgrade to IEM 9.2 until they can migrate all components to supported 64-bit platforms.
