PI server x86 to x64

So it is that time of the week again and I have been thinking (I like to call it research & development)...

 

Have seen a client that is embarking on migrating from a 32bit PI system to a 64bit Win2k3 server and questions being asked what should they do - install 32bit PI system on the 64bit Win2k3 server, restore PI system then upgrade the PI system to x64 OR just do a straightforward install of x64 PI system and restore the PI system from x86 OR forget x64 and just stick to x86.

 

I am interested to seek more information if there are any immediate hurdles to get over with such a scenario.  My immediate thoughts are the x86 won't restore "nicely" onto an x64 system (maybe I am wrong?), some interfaces are still 32bit, will something get corrupted (pipoints??)?

 

What is the current norm now, are x64 systems more common?
