The answer in cases like this is feel free to give it a shot, but technologies/OSs that are no longer supported by the vendor are not supported by Dynatrace and Windows 2003 has not been supported by Microsoft since 2015. I think I've heard some cases where the installer doesn't even start on such an old OS.

And of course just a note that using an old unsupported OS is a pretty big security risk: https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/TA14-310A so keep that in mind.

Hi Robert,

Windows 2003 is not supported by OneAgent as per https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/...

As far as I know the installer does not even work there, just as James said.

Regards,

Tomasz

PlugIn is now available which will give some metrics

Be wary of your server hardening and how it is configured on these OLD servers :)
