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.

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 you run on a client is supported by the organization that supplies the operating system.
