Question:

Can a WAAE 11.3.x agent be installed on a Windows server that already has a WAAE 4.51 Agent?

 

Environment:
Workload Automation AE - 4.x, 11.3.xPlatform - WindowsDatabase - ANY
Answer:

Yes, the two different WAAE agents can co-exist on 1 host.

The items to be aware of are to not mix the directory structures or ports.

Please make note of the operating system type/version to make sure what is being attempted is supported.

WAAE 4.x was dropped from support as of 03/15/2013 and was never certified on many of the newer operating systems.

While the newer WAAE 11.3 agents do not support many of the older operating systems.
