How to migrate 32 bit cluster to 64 bit

Postby guest » Sun Nov 16, 2008 9:29 pm

For 2003? There's not really much out there...easiest way is to just build a
new cluster from scratch.

You can migrate from a x86 2003 cluster to an x64 2008 cluster. If you're
updating hardware, it might also be a good time to update your O/S. See the
following for details about 2003 > 2008 migrations:
