     Can we install an OPMS on Red Hat without installing the Network Manager package?

Environment

This information applies to all supported OPMS versions.

Resolution

     The Network Manager package on RHEL is needed for installation and upgrades only. This package is used to install specific repositories (and verify dependencies on repositories the installer needs to run). Once the OPMS is installed, Network Manager can be disabled. However, for future upgrades, this package will need to be enabled again.

Additional Information

     As always, please contact CA Technologies support if you have further questions.
