    Cross-Posting from Serverfault.com:

    So Lion generally represented a pretty serious move toward 64-bit systems for Mac OS X. But while I was poking around the Lion Server: Advanced Administration guidelines here:

    https://help.apple.com/advancedserveradmin/mac/10.7/#apd028B7F36-CEF3-46A8-B6CA-B138FCCFF527

    I ran across this gem:

    Is that text a holdover from an older version of the documentation, or is the Xgrid controller still really a 32-bit process?

    Just launch the controller on your system and check Activity Monitor to find out if it's 32 or 64 b.

    One would need a copy of Lion server, no?

    xgridcontrollerd is a 64-bit application on 10.7 server and I would assume the same on 10.7. You can test it yourself using xgridctl from Terminal.
