We have a limited number of systems running XP, 2003, and yes even a few 2000. It works fine on each as long as you have enough disk space for updates & logs. I wish I could same the same for the newer Agents.
As far as performance, it's really a question of use cases. The 2003 and 2000 servers are extremely specialized, and thus have some odd exclusions. In my experience, the requirements don't really address the real issue.... it's more a question of Disk I/O than CPU or RAM.
Thank you. This is interesting. You're saying "I wish I could say the same for the newer agents". Do you mean that the new Agents require a lot of resources?
Not really more resources, but just that we are still juggling multiple versions of the Windows agent to support these undead operating systems. But VSE 8.8 seems to run nicely on just about anything.
Thanks a lot for your feedback!
