Remote cell requirements for Linux  

Component

Requirement

Supported versions of Linux

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux versions 6.7, 6.8, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 (64 bit)

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2, 11 SP3, 12 (64 bit)

  • Oracle Linux Server versions 6.8 and 7.3 (64 bit)

Memory

Swap space

1 GB

On Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the following libraries must be installed before installing the Remote cell.   

The preferred method to add any missing libraries is to use the yum command to fetch the necessary library packages from the RHN (Red Hat Network) repository via the internet.  To use this method, a Red Hat subscription is needed. Register the system by clicking System->Administration->Red Hat Subscription Manager in the menu on the server itself.  After registering the system, you can use "yum install" to download and install the required libraries from the RHN.

  • After installing the libraries, run yum check to ensure that the libraries are not corrupt.

Notes

  • The 64-bit remote cell is not supported on IBM AIX platforms.
  • BMC products are certified for use on supported operating system versions. BMC does not explicitly test for OS patches/updates that are released after a BMC product is released. BMC products should work fine with minor updates to these supported operating systems. For assistance, please contact BMC Customer Support.
