When upgrading you do not need to change your deployment architectures. BMC recommends that you upgrade using your existing architecture and test version 11.2 in a known configuration.

If you require additional performance improvements offered by a cluster, you can add hardware and replace one or more version 11.2 machines with a cluster.

CentOS 6 replaces Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 in BMC Discovery 11.2

The upgrade to BMC Discovery 11.2 replaces Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 with CentOS 6. CentOS is an enterprise-class Linux platform which is derived from, and aims to be functionally compatible with its upstream source, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

As CentOS is derived from, and aims to be functionally compatible with its upstream source, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, BMC performs the same testing against the Red Hat 6 STIGs.

When applying OS upgrades to BMC Discovery 11.2, ensure that you download and apply the Latest CentOS 6 operating system upgrade.

  1. This list:  

    • 11.1, 11, 11.1.0.1, 11.1.0.2, 11.1.0.3, and 11.1.0.5.

    Should be changed to:

    • 11.1, 11, 11.1.0.1, 11.1.0.2, 11.1.0.3, and 11.1.0.5, 11.1.0.6
  2. No it should not - that would be wrong.

  3. Andrew is right.  I was wrong.

    There is no documented path to upgrade from 11.1.0.6 on this page.

    (I opened doc defect:  DRUD1-23079)

    Apparently, you can upgrade from 11.1.0.6 to 11.2.0.2.

    Hopefully, doc gets updated soon.
