ipMonitor 9 & Windows 2008

Has anyone been able to install ipMonitor 9 on Windows 2008 server.  I just installed the eval I downloaded from the web site and the service won't start.


Thanks.

I have installed the trial on my windows XP desktop, and have found it is monitoring all our Windows Server 2008 computers very well. We are running all windows 2008 servers, with the exception of our Anti-virus management computer which is server 2003.  I am not sure if i would want to install this on the server, as I see more functionality of having the program on my personal desktop and just monitoring all the servers from here.  Having the ability to install on the servers is not so important in this aspect.  As long as the servers are monitored, why does it matter what computer the program is installed on, i have full functionality installed on my desktop.

We are likewise solely using Windows Server 2008. It's great that you can monitor the server, however, being able to run the software from a central server is very important.  Desktops turn off frequently enough to not be viable as a monitor station.


 Is there an ETA for a release?

We hope to have this available in early 2009.

Chris,


Will ipMonitor be able to run on a Win 2008 virtual machine that is part of a HyperV cluster?  


Thanks

HyperV should not have any impact if ipMonitor supports Windows 2008 as a host OS, but we'll ensure we do some testing in that configuration.

Is it still planned for early 2009 for Server 2008 support. We too are moving to Server 2008 very quickly.

Hi, was wondering if there is support for IPmonitor on Win2008 (better yet, R2) ... the last post was dated Oct. 2008, but here we are in 2010 -- any word?

0 Kudos

Version 10 has Server 2008 32-bit as a supported OS.  No word on R2 or 64-bit.  It would be nice to have official 64-bit OS support since that's where we're all headed anyway.

I agree ... I didn't even know v.10 was out yet, but it's good that at least it can be installed on 2008 32-bit.  Thanks for the heads-up!

We are actually in testing now.  Our hope is that we might have it before 2009, but can't commit anything until we are further along in the testing cycle.

 I don't believe that is supported. Currently only Windows Vista (IPv4 mode only), Windows XP SP2 or later, Windows Server 2003 SP1 & R2.

That's correct.   We're planning on adding support for Windows 2008 in a future release.  To help us prioritize, we'd be interested to know our customers' deployment timeframes for Windows 2008.   Are you just kicking the tires right now?  Or is it a 2009 project?

We have been using ipMonitor for 3 years now.  It's time for us to retire our old apps and servers and upgrade.  We are deploying all of our new servers based on Windows 2008.  We will deploy ipMonitor as soon as it's available for Windows 2008.  When do you expect your next release?


0 Kudos

We hope to have a 2H08 release, but our current thinking was to only support monitoring Windows 2008 servers not running on them.   


Are there others out there that require the ability to host ipMonitor on Windows 2008 servers?   If so, please post to help us prioritize.

We are already deploying Windows Server 2008 and will be more aggresive in the next 3 months. I would expect these tools to both monitor and be hosted on Windows Server 2008. My experience to date is that any product that runs on Windows Server 2003 will most likely run on Windows Server 2008, it may take a bit more work as the product is significantly more compartmentalized and secure.

Thanks for the feedback!

 I would definitely like to see Windows 2008 support as I'm in the process of migrating servers wherever it makes sense.

today i tried to install ipmonitor9 on a new windows2008 server


(our old server is eos next month)


 I found out (after mailing with support) that windows 2008 is not yet supported.


Just fyi: officially we are not allowed to install windows 2003 on this new server (the OS is licensed from microsoft in the SPLA program)


 looks like we have to install windows 2003 on the server.....
