  • 32bit and 64bit DC`s same domain

    Is it possible to run a Windows 2008 64bit DC along side a Windows 2008 32bit DC?

    Many thanks in advance.

    No problem at all
    The role (DC) is independent of the underlying OS

      Thanks for your reply.

      One final question, if you do not mind...

      Would this solution work?

      DC1 x32 2008 with SQL 2005
      DC2 x64 or x32 2008 File Server
      EXC 2007 SP1 x64 2008
      Terminal Server x32 2003

      or can you foresee any issues?

        IMHO no problems, however you may want to keep your DC separate from other roles, particularly SQL

        Others will add their $0.02 worth, probably including virtualisation

          I agree with your comments regarding SQL, although budgets and the amount of users (15 in total) shouldnt affect its performance too much.

          You have been very helpful. Thank you. How do I leave you feedback? I am new to this.

                I can say that i have Replicated a SBS2008 that is a 64Bit OS to a Win 2003 32Bit OS, and it worked nice, no problems with that.
