Running 2 Application Pools configured differently on IIS (32 bits and 64 bits).

Webagent for IIS installed can work for both 32 and 64 bits application pool but when accessing one application we cannot access the second application.


The Webagent has two Webagent.conf for 32 bits applications and for 64 bits applications

  • C:\Program Files\CA\webagent\win64\bin\IIS\WebAgent.conf
  • C:\Program Files\CA\webagent\win64\bin\IIS\WebAgent.conf

In these Webagent.conf there is a ServerPath parameter defined, values of both ServerPath should be different.

By default for 32 bit it is set to ServerPath="W3SVC32" and for 64 bits it is set to ServerPath="W3SVC"
