64/32 bit question

64/32 bit question

64/32 bit question

(OP)
On a server platform with 64-bit CPUs, if I install ESXi can I run both 64- and 32-bit guest environments, without interoperation issues? We're looking at an oversized server for Exchange 2007 and a couple other small app servers, but a couple run legacy software that aren't certified for a 64-bit environment.

RE: 64/32 bit question

Yes you can, as long the processor is 64bit it can operate both 32 and 64bit code (and hence OS's).

The real world is not about exam scores, it's about ability.
