I have system recovery server install on a 32 bit 2003 SP2 box.  This was done by someone before I took over this job.  It seems that the install is only equipted to backup 32bit machines.  I tried to deploy the Agent to a 64bit machine which fails when I try to back up the server.  When i go through the program files, there is a folder under Agent called "RAWS32".  I'm assuming this is "recovery agent 32bit".  I checked some CD's I have and couldn't find a 64 bit agent.  Any idea where I can one?  Or if my SRS 6.5 can even backup 64 bit machines?

SRS 6.5 is not 64  bit capable as if my memory serves me correctly that was allowable with 7.0 when it changed from livestate to backup exec system recovery.

Current version is 9.0 (BESR 2010), 6.5 was mostly for 2000 and 2003 systems and was actually rebranded Powerquest V2i Protector that Symantec purchased when they bought powerquest.  This is why the files are still "V2I"
