Hi, Please find support

Hi,

Please find support matrix from 6.1 release.

OS

Levels

Kernel version

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6

Update 3(2.6.32-279.el6)

Update 4(2.6.32-358.el6)

Update 5(2.6.32-431.el6)

Note: Update 5 is supported if you install the required VxFS, LLT, and ODM patches.

Symantec Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions (SFHA) 6.1 by default does not support RHEL 6.5 and Oracle Linux (OL) 6.5 due to incompatibility in the kernel interface in the Veritas File System (VxFS), Low Latency Transport (LLT), and Oracle Disk Manager (ODM) components of SFHA.

To support RHEL 6.5 and OL 6.5, you must install SFHA 6.1, and then install the required VxFS, LLT, and ODM patches as described in below Table to resolve the kernel incompatibility.
