Issue/Introduction

 

Running Web Agent, is Web Agent version 6.0SP4CR09 on IIS6 on Windows
2003 still compatible with Policy Server 12.8SP3 ?

 

Environment

 

  Web Agent 6.0SP4CR09 on IIS6 on Windows 2003
  Policy Server 12.8SP3

 

Resolution

 

At first glance, this Web Agent version is compatible with Policy
Server 12.8SP3 as per our Support Matrix (1).

It's to be underlined that both IIS6 and Windows 2003 being out of
support, the Web Agent 6SP4 is also not supported on IIS6 on Windows
2003 as per Support Matrix (2)

Windows 2003 has been out of support from long ago too (3).

The same applies to IIS 6 (4).
