Supported Clients and Features

Uyuni is compatible with a range of client technologies. You can install traditional or Salt clients, running SUSE Linux Enterprise or another Linux operating system, with a range of hardware options.

This section contains summary of supported client systems. For a detailed list of features available on each client, see the following pages.

1. Supported Client Systems

Supported operating systems for traditional and Salt clients are listed in this table.

The icons in this table indicate:

  • clients running this operating system are supported by SUSE

  • clients running this operating system are not supported by SUSE

  • clients are under consideration, and may or may not be supported at a later date.

Client operating system versions and SP levels must be under general support (normal or LTSS) to be supported with Uyuni. For details on supported product versions, see https://www.suse.com/lifecycle.

The operating system running on a client is supported by the organization that supplies the operating system.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, Oracle Linux 6, CentOS 6, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server-ES 6, and Ubuntu 16.04 are end-of-life upstream and no longer supported by SUSE as client operating systems. SUSE Manager Client Tools for these operating systems are still provided from SCC for convenience.

Debian 9 is approaching end-of-life stage. For a grace period of 3 months it will be considered as deprecated and may only be supported on a best-effort basis. After 3 months it will be moved to the list of unsupported systems.

Debian and Ubuntu lists the x86-64 architecture as amd64.
