Can you run an agent on Win 7 x64 ?

Hi,

We have Netware servers on remote sites and wish to report against them, so obviously we need to run agents on another platform (Windows with Client or OES Linux).

Our Engine and SQL servers will be in the central data centre with WAN links to the sites, so I assume we are best putting the agents out on each site ?

Do I really need to install a full Windows server at each site (with client) or can I install the agent piece on a (dedicated) Windows 7 x64 virtual machine with the client installed ?

Note this is reporting is so we can move the files off the Netware servers, so it isn't a long term solution.

Cheers
Ian

Ian,

It's not a supported configuration - only Windows Server installs are
supported - but a Windows Workstation VM may indeed work. The installer
and config utility will run on them. You'd need .NET 4.6.2 as well. We
strongly recommend a Windows Server OS, however.
