  • HI

     we had moss 2007 two front end and back end in server 2003 32 bit.My log file location was

    f:\sharepoint logfiles.


      Now we migrated to new server which is having server 2008 64 bit. This new server having both front end and back end.My log file location is c:\....\12\bin\log. SO i tried to connect my one more web front end(server 2003 32 bit)  to this new farm.

           I am getting this error when i run sharepoint product and technology wizard to connect with the existing farm.

    Task configdb has failed with an unknown exception.

    Exception System.IO.Directory Not found exception.Could not find a part of the path f:\sharepoint logfiles.

    Why it is asking this folder.

  • Hi,

    You can mix 32 bits and 64 bits in the same farm, it's fully supported.

    However, it's highly recommenced to keep each tiers in the same bit width (for example all WFE 64 bits, application server 32 bits, SQL servers 64 bits).

    From msdn @ http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc261700.aspx

    You can deploy an Office SharePoint Server 2007 farm on a mix of 32-bit and 64-bit servers, provided that you maintain architecture homogeneity at each topology layer. For example, you should not mix 32-bit and 64-bit Web front-end (WFE) servers, but you may use 64-bit database servers in a farm with 32-bit WFE servers and application servers.
