I captured the info from the system requirements only. The confusing statement from DT6.0 release notes was "dynaTrace Collector & Server is only supported by operating systems that support Java 7", but when I looked at the specification of oracle site it does not list Windows Server 2003 as one of the supported servers for jdk 1.7
Could you please clarify. Here is my server details
Windows server 2003 standard SP2 (64-bit) Intel® Xeon® CPU E7450@2.40 GHz
Although Windows Server 2003 isn't on the list of supported OS for Java 1.7, we do support it, because our tests show no issues with Win2003.
We will announce discontinue support for Windows Sever 2003 in the upcoming 6.2 release, which means 6.2 is the last version, where Win2003 is supported.
Reason for that is the EOL of Windows Server 2003 announced by Microsoft for July 2015.
When do you plan to upgrade your Windows Server 2003?
This was a good information. Definetly I do have plans to upgrade my server from 2003 to the latest as we are upgrading DT4.2 to DT6.0.
So I would like to confirm on the H/W details before take any decision.
I contemplated changing the documentation, but it says we support Win 2003 latest SP.
We had a lot of such edge-cases / hair-splitting recently and one can´t account for each and every variant.
Pragmatic way is to ask – like in this case.
