I have never really used Linux. I just installed the Red Hat Enterprise 5.2 in order to have a view of the interface and learn how to navigate.
I have installed SSR 2011 Linux edition.
A client has Linux CENTOS 5 and is about to purchase SSR 2011 Linux edition. I found out that the CENTOS is a flavor of RedHat.
I need to know if the SSR 2011 will work and if there are any differences between the CENTOS and the Red Hat i installed.
I already have this document.
I just want to know if the SSR 2011 Linux edition supports CENTOS. I don't see it on the list od system requirements.
Linux CENTOS 5 is not supported at this time. I don't have the roadmap for Linux, so I can't say at this point if or when it will be supported in future versions.
At this time SSR-L 2011 doesn't officially support any free open source OS for the backup. I believe CENTOS is the free open source for RedHat whereas, RedHat has paid support and upgrade.
Since the look and feel of RedHat and CentOS is the same you can give it a try with SSR-L 2011, however, it wouldn't be officially supported from Symantec as the CentOS is not tested with SSR-L 2011.
I have not tested it yet
I may not recommend it since there will be no support from Symantec. I do not want issues later, even if it works at all
You could just try it, since the SSR LNX edition will recognize all the file system structure of the same Linux flavour that it supports i.e RED HAT.
But, try it with your own consequences since Symantec won't acknowledge and support it at all. In other word, should there are bug, problem or system crash, you can't open case on Symantec Support.
