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?
We had a call with the product team and there are no plans to support RHEL 6
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.
Is there anyone who knows is they plan support for redhat 6?
A lot of our servers are rhel6 and our linux team is not planning to update this at this moment.
