    I just installed NOD32 for Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 (32-bit/64-bit) 2.51.26 English Language on a brand new server running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition Service Pack 1.

    The computer is a Itanium 2 1.50GHz with 6GB of RAM.
    Install run fine, and after reboot I get the following error message:
    Title bar: AMON - File system monitor (NOD32)
    Message: Unable to load file system monitor.
    Only option: OK

    Is NOD32 compatible with Itanium 2 IA64 processors?

    I remember long ago also having problems on multiprocessor systems (mostly server editions with DC) running NOD32 with IMON enabled. The only workaround was either to disable the Hyper-threading feature in BIOS, or turn off IMON. Now the problem is with AMON. Anybody got this problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    Nope, AMON does not work on Itanium-based servers.

    Without IMON since it's a server and without AMON because it does not work on Itanium-based servers, I won't have AV!

    I'll have to install another AV solution, right? What do you recommend? KAV?


    Cheers,

    Hello angelo,

    If indeed there is an unfortunate need for u to find another AV and u have questions on this please post your concerns in the appropriate forum such as the other anti-virus software subforum.

    Thanks,

    You mean question is off-topic. Of course it is, but it came naturally upon the thread. Sorry for writing those 3 banned letters.

    Anyway I don't feel to change my AV solution. NOD32 is good and I ask: Will ESET overcome this issue?

    Since the scanning core is written in assembler, it's very difficult to adopt it for Itanium processors.

    Thank you Marcos for your reply. I won't go to other anti-virus software subforum as snowbound sugested. I will replace the server.

    Cheers,
