Which features do MID Servers not support, depending on whether it is running on a Linux or Windows Host



Some ServiceNow features use MID Servers, and additionally rely on features of the host operating system, or 3rd party applications that only support certain operating systems.

The following table lists known limitations, which will dictate which Host OS the MID Server will need to be installed on. This list is not comprehensive, and does not include anything that would be expected to work on both Windows and Linux:
