FAST Search support validity for SP2013 on same box serving a SharePoint2010 Farm RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a SharePoint 2010 farm which is using its own servers.
    This farm has a FAST Search for SharePoint server which is a standalone on a dedicated server.

    This farm is my testing staging environment and not a Production environment, eventhough its almost an exact copy of the Production farm.

    I would like to replace the FAST server with SharePoint 2013 as a search engine for my SharePoint 2010 farm.

    Because i have a standalone deployment of FAST on a dedicated server and i dont have any more servers to add to this farm,
    I would like to install SharePoint 2013 on same server as FAST while FAST is still active, connect it to the 2010 farm and do some tests before i will remove the FAST content and query SSA's.

    I would like to know if installing a SP2013 on same machine as FAST is supported by Microsoft as long as the FAST is not connected to the SP2013? (performance is not an issue)

    What about All in one machines like development servers, is it supported by Microsoft to install FAST on same machine as SP2010 farm? (again, performance is not an issue)
