Basic Requirements

Source Server: Physical or Virtual, 32-bit or 64-bit
Windows Server 2003 wSP1 or later, Windows 2008 Server, Windows 2008 R2 Server

Target Server: Physical or Virtual, 32-bit or 64 bit
Windows Server 2003 wSP1 or later, Windows 2008 Server, Windows 2008 R2 Server

Operating System of source and target should match. (W2003-to-W2003, W2008-to-W2008) and the bit-level should also match.
The Full-Server Failover Manager console requires Microsoft .NET version 2.0.x or 3.5.1. These versions are not included in the .NET version 4.0 release. Therefore, even if you have .NET version 4.0 installed, you will also need version 2.0.x or 3.5.1. You can install the 3.5.1 version from the Double-Take Availability CD, via a web connection during the Double-Take Availability installation, or from a copy you have obtained manually from the Microsoft web site.
