Description Beat Rubischon 2018-05-09 07:43:32 UTC
Document URL: 


Section Number and Name: 

2.1. System Requirements

Describe the issue: 

The current document describes the underlying OS as "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Server".

A customer following a Standard Operating Environment approach requires more information, like a detailed mapping of Satellite zStreams to RHEL zStreams and RHSCL versions.

Suggestions for improvement: 

Document the QAd combination of Satellite zStream, RHEL zStream and RHSCL versions.

Hi Stephen, 

I agree that guides are too slow to keep this info up to date, and in conversations with support they're concerned about "pinning" versions together in a customer environment. I'm also concerned about who will be responsible for testing these combinations and on what schedule.

Due to these concerns I'm moving this to 6.5 to give us time to look at engineering solutions to pinning z-stream versions together.

Hi Karie, 

Since nothing seems to have happened with this, can you take a look at it with the product team in Steve's place? 

Thank you,

Is providing the information requested in this bug possible? Do we want to commit to this type of information in the z-streams.
