Issue/Introduction

Can I install a UIM robot on Oracle Linux?

Does UIM support Oracle Linux for installing a robot? 

 

Environment

Release : 20.1

Component : UIM - ROBOT

Resolution

Oracle Linux is not officially supported. 

The supported platforms for installing robots are located here:

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/unified-infrastructure-management/20-1/installing/product-compatibility/ca-uim-compatibility-matrix.html 

 

Oracle Linux is not mentioned so it's not officially supported. 

 

Community Idea: Nimsoft Robot/Probe support required for Oracle OEL O/S

However, we support Red Hat Compatible Kernel which is identical to the OEL kernel. 

We have not tested it, but since OEL is based on RHCK then it should work AS-is.
