Support for Windows 2003 and 2008 servers (32-bit agent)
We still have some 32-bit servers (Windows Server 2003, but mostly Windows Server 2008). Currently there is only an agent for 64-bit servers. We would like to monitor our 32-bit servers as well and would like to have an agent for these.
We do have the 32bit SCOM agent http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn281931.aspx
For Direct Agent, this is now available for download http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2015/06/24/oms-agent-now-supports-w2k8-sp1-os-and-32bit-systems.aspx
This is for 2008SP1, anyhow, not 2003 – 2003 goes completely out of support in July – http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/products/windows-server-2003/
Also, some of the solutions might still need to be tweaked to work on downlevel OS with direct agent) or have higher pre-requisites (.net framework, etc).
Any word on a solution for 2003 servers? Since standalone adReplStatus was killed off with a "license check", I went through the process of starting a MOMS space online, only to find that the new 32-bit client won't install on 2003.

We have 2 32-bit W2k3 machines, we cannot upgrade yet, running as well. We'd highly appreciate if this 32bit agent would be available. Gr, Ben

This would be great for gathering software metrics from 2003 2008 and if down to SQL 2005 for migration targets... create an intelligent pack that gives 2003/2008 Server and SQL 2005/2008 mgration options/targets...
