My institution is currently running M-Business (v5.3, b173) on Wndows Server
2000. We want to upgrade to Windows Server 2003.

Is the above version of M-Business compatible with Windows Server 2003?

I have checked the product website and it only mentions NT (SP6) and 2000
(SP4) as acceptable operating systems.

Thanks.

According to the Datasheet only Windows NT 4 SP 6a and Windows 2000
has been certified

http://www.ianywhere.com/datasheets/mbusiness_anywhere.html

Server Requirements
a.. Windows NT Server 4 Service Pack 6a; minimum Pentium II 233 MHz, 256
MB RAM, 400 MB disk space Windows 2000 Server Service Pack 2; minimum
Pentium II 233 MHz; 128MB RAM; 100MB disk space
which matches with the version 5.3 Admin Guide.

These are just the tested platforms. We do know of customers who have
installed on XP and we internally use XP on a number of staff systems
without any platform problems.

But there has not been much testing or experience with Win2k+3.
So if you really must doe this, I would wait until it is certified or
exhaustively test it out first (yourself) and decide if it is viable.
If you experience any problems let us know before you choose
to deploy.
