So are there any work arounds to RHEL 6 support with SCOM 2019? I know for 2008R2 I can load the SCOM 2016 1807 agent and it will work. Is there anything like that I can do to monitor my RHEL 6 until we complete our upgrade of that OS?
I would be surprised if the agent that supports RHEL 5/6/7 does not talk to SCOM 2019 – have you tried it? MS have not updated the RHEL doc for years
I have confirmed that it is not officially supported. We have not yet tried to install 2019 we were about to but this is a show stopper and we would have to stick with 2016. What I am hoping is that MS comes out with an option in the next few days due to customer outcry. I have heard that they were getting a lot of push back from the nothing older than 2012 being supported and they may reverse that stance. Hoping same thing happens for RHEL 6 which has a longer support life than 2008R2. They want people to adopt he new platform but this will chase an issue.
