Can I use FMS 9 to remotely Admin FM 8?

I have a some clients who have FMS 8 installed, and I do remote administration for them.

Now a client has bought FMS 9.

I was hoping to have both flavor on my machine to do the administration, but it appears that I must unistall FMS 8 before installing FMS 9.

Question: will I still be able to remotely administer my FMS 8 servers?

Thanks,

You don't need anything on your machine to remotely administer FMS 9 (save Java). FMS 9 is a Java WebStart application that is downloaded to your local machine when you want to administer the server. Therefore you can keep FMS 8 installed on your local machine, including the FMS 8 Server Admin Tool, and when you want to administer an FMS 9 machine you simply open your browser and type in the server's address such as:

http://your.client.server.com:16000/

This will bring up the admin page and trigger a download of the FMS 9 administration app which will open in Java. Because it is a completely different and separate application you can even administer FMS 8 and FMS 9 simultaneously if you'd like.

You only need to copy out the FMS 8 Server Admin Tool if you want to install FMS 9 on your local machine.
