Monitor Knowledgebase

Summary

This monitor checks the version of agents and generates an alert when it detects a 32-bit agent installed on a 64-bit operating system. Running a 32-bit agent on a 64-bit operating system will produce unreliable results and is not a supported configuration.

Causes

The agent installed on the computer specified in the alert is the incorrect version for the operating system. This may occur when the agent is installed manually.

Resolutions

On the computer specified in the alert, remove the Operations Manager agent manually by using Programs and Features in Control Panel. You can then reinstall the agent, either by using the Operations console (recommended) or manually. If you install the agent manually, ensure that you install the correct version of the agent for the operating system.
