Re: Notification services on Itanium Hardware
SQLNS v2.0 (for SQL Server 2000) is not supported on the 64-bit
platform. Perhaps you can look into leaving one 32-bit system in place
to run the SQLNS components and migrate the rest. The 32-bit SQLNS
components can pull event data from a 64-bit system.
