Supported Client Systems

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

In this table, indicates that clients running the operating system are supported by SUSE, and indicates that it is not supported. Fields marked as are under consideration, and may or may not be supported at a later date.

For SUSE operating systems, the version and SP level 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. For non-SUSE operating systems, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and Oracle Linux, only the latest available version is under general support.

When you are setting up your client hardware, you need to ensure you have enough for the operating system and for the workload you want to perform on the client, with these additions for Uyuni:
