  2. Hello samsung,

    According to:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/298138

    See the part about 32bit to 64bit in the above one:
    "Moving Certificate Services from a 32-bit operating system to a 64-bit operating
    system or vice-versa may fail with one of the following error messages:
    The expected data does not exist in this directory.
    Restore of incremental image cannot be performed before performing restore
    from a full image 0x8007010b (WIN32/HTTP:267)

    Database format changes from the 32-bit version to the 64-bit version cause
    incompatibilities, and the restore is blocked. This is similar to the move
    from Windows 2000 to the Windows Server 2003 CA. However, there is no upgrade
    path from a 32-bit version of Windows Server 2003 to a 64-bit version. Therefore,
    you cannot move an existing 32-bit database to a 64-bit database."

    it is not possible that way.

    Also see:

    Additional i will crosspost this to:
    microsoft.public.windows.server.security

    The better place for CA questions.

    Best regards
