- Fixed issues:
        NX-513 (add toString() to all data objects in netxms-base)
        NX-599 (Delete single collected value from a DCI)
        NX-669 (DRBD monitoring is not working in some configurations)
        NX-689 (Pass found SNMP configuration while discovery for new node creation)
        NX-890 (Passive elements in rack)
        NX-1169 (Encryption is not set by default between agent and server)
        NX-1297 (Copying Files inside File Manager using CTRL and Drag&Drop is not working)
        NX-1299 (Add username filter to CountEx(*) and Process.XXX(*) parameters in Linux subagent)
        NX-1306 (Show system FQDN in tunnel manager)
        NX-1350 (Invert Values option for performance tab DCIs; Performance tab graph configuration is maintained on double-click)
        NX-1366 (Edit option for "group box" decorations on network maps)
        NX-1369 (Title not displayed for dashboard element "Rack")
        NX-1370 (Rack page not displayed correctly when switch between rack objects)
        NX-1372 (PING subagent is not working)
        NX-1374 (Element DashboardGroup not displayed in Dashboard perspective)
        NX-1373 (Error message "Error loading RSA keys from ..." in all server-to-agent command line tools)
        NX-1375 (Add functionality to switch off multipliers for graphs)
        NX-1376 (Windows agent reports incorrect OS version on Windows 10)
        NX-1379 (Rack width calculated incorrectly if only front/back selected)
        NX-1380 (Database error when node has LLDP ID longer than 63 characters)
        NX-1381 (Unjustified NXSL errors "cannot do automatic type cast")
        NX-1384 (Automatic ping target configuration on first data request)

Hi, I would like to upgrade NetXMS server from 2.1 to 2.2.2. I am looking for a Server installer for Windows x86. NetXMS download site has links to Server Binaries only for Windows x64. Why is the 32-bit installer discontinued? Thanks.

PhysicalDisk.Model metrics still causes agents to crash :( Also all the agents become dead after upgrade to 2.2.2 on WinXP machines. It started since 2.2.1. May be Windows XP isn't supported anymore? Is 2.1.2 the last XP-compatible version?

We switched to Visual Studio 2017 for building Windows binaries. It should support Windows XP SP3 and higher (but Windows XP before SP3 is not supported). What exact Windows version you have?

Hi,

we are trying to reduce release efforts by excluding old and rarely used targets. We consider that since Windows Server 2008 R2 all server operating systems are 64 bit 32 bit server build is not necessary. What OS you are using for running NetXMS server?
I can make 32 bit installer for 2.2.2, but we will discontinue 32 bit builds sooner or later anyway.

Best regards,
Victor

I tried to execute the following steps locally on several machines running XP Pro SP3:

1. Switch off all antivirus functions (Avast)
2. Remove NetXMS agent (2.1.2 or 2.2.1) through the standard Control Panel
3. Install NetXMS Agent 2.2.2 (the installation process runs smoothly, with no errors)
4. Run services.msc and see that the NetXMS Agent service isn't running.
5. Trying to run the NetXMS Agent service. The result is Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

All I can do now is to remove NetXMS Agent 2.2.2 and install 2.1.2. Now it runs fine again.

P.S. May be the problem is caused by outdated .Net Framework? Fresh releases can't be installed in Windows XP...

We don't use .NET, only Visual C++ runtime. What if you install Visual C++ 2017 runtime on such machine?

Hi Victor,

Thanks for your reply. I am using Windows 10 x64. While installing 64-bit NetXMS Server I get an architectural mismatch error since I am using 32-bit SQL server. That is why I was looking for a 32-bit NetXMS Server installer.

I totally understand your point of view. I think you are right in your decision to discontinue 32-bit builds. I should move on to 64-bit products, too.

Thanks,
Brown

As far as I know you can install 64 bit native client on the same machine alongside 32 bit client (but I could be wrong, I'm not an expert on SQL Server at all).

There are some strange things:

1. Microsoft web site doesn't allow to choose what build (x86 or x64) of Vis. C++ Redist. 2017 should be downloaded. Only x64 build is always downloaded (for C++ 2015 you can choose between x86 and x64)

2. NetXMS Agent 2.2.2 32-bit works properly in Vista (32-bit SP2) although there is no VC++ 2017 Redist. on that machine installed (the newest is VC++ 2010).

Agent comes with VC++ 2017 runtime packaged - this is why it works on Vista 32-bit. It is supposed to work on XP too. I'll check myself on some XP machine. So far I suggest to stick with agent from 2.1 branch for Windows XP.
