HP DL 380 G5 Intel Xeon X5270

Hello everybody.
Last year we bought 4 Proliant servers DL380G5 with Intel Xeon X5270 and Windows 2003 R2 beacuse of SWIFT Applications version 6.3. This year we have been told by SWIFT that version 7 will work only on Windows 2008 R2 X64 on 64 bit processor hardware.
I dont know if this can work on these servers with those parameters, if not I have to buy new servers?
Can you give me any clarification?

hi Enkli,

That server will support Windows 2008 R2 x64. However if your current operating system is Windows 2003 R2 x86 (32-bit), you cannot upgrade the OS directly. You will need to reinstall Windows. There is no upgrade path from 32-bit to 64-bit.

good luck, if you appreciate the answers we appreciate the points!
