[EOL/EOE] How can I install NSM on a 64-bit server?



Article ID: KB12618 KB Last Updated: 18 Oct 2020Version: 4.0
Note: A product listed in this article has either reached hardware End of Life (EOL) OR software End of Engineering (EOE).  Refer to End of Life Products & Milestones for the EOL, EOE, and End of Support (EOS) dates.
This article describes the only method for installing Network and Security Manager or NetScreen-Security Manager (NSM) on a 64-bit server.
NSM is currently not supported on 64-bit Linux.  In fact, the newer installers will recognize a 64-bit Operating System and halt the installation as unsupported.
If you have invested in 64-bit hardware to run your NSM server, there is only one way for this to work.

Once you license your RedHat 64-bit server OS (RedHat ES/AS 4 or RedHat ES/AS 5) you can download the 32-bit version of the same OS.  Install the 32-bit version of RedHat on your server.  This will allow NSM to be installed on the 64-bit hardware.

In the future, when 64-bit systems are supported, the OS can be re-installed to the 64-bit version and have NSM installed.
