Hi Mrinal, Our current

Hi Mrinal,

Our current products for SFW/SFW-HA/VCS no longer support Windows 2003 server.  Our older products that support windows 2003 server are no longer available for purchase.

You will need to use Windows 2008 at a minimum for any new installation of SFW/SFW-HA/VCS for Windows.



Please also note that

Please also note that Microsoft support for W2003 will end shortly. Get your Sysadmins to upgrade to supported OS, discuss RTO and RPO requirements with Application owners, then reach out to a local Symantec/Veritas reseller with Storage and Cluster skills as well as Backup and Recovery. They will be able to advise you on DR options.
