What Redhat Linux OS to install on DL360 G2?

Currently have Redhat 7.3 running.

Want to install the most recent OS with RHN support, since RedHat the RHN no longer supports versions 7.* and 8.0 (with 9.0 to go shortly).

l see on the HP site (http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/family/model/2543.html?locale=en_US&prodSeriesId=316590) that it goes up to RedHat 8.0 and Enterprise 2.1 officially.

Has anyone installed Redhat 9.0 or Enterprise ES? Is it possible?

We could use older versions, and just use APT, but for ease of support and management would like to stick with RHN.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can install either RH9 or RHEL 2.1 ES on a DL360G2.

Currently, HP supports RH7.2, RH7.3, RH8.0, RHAS 2.1, RHEL 2.1 AS, RHEL 2.1 ES. Support is forthcoming for RHEL 3 Update 1.

Below is the support matrix:

RedHat Enterprise Linux 2.1 refers to RHAS 2.1, RHEL 2.1 AS and RHEL 2.1 ES. HP does not support RHEL 2.1 WS.

Thanks Bill.

Sorry for not posting points earlier, but l did not get the responcse notification email, and only saw your reply today.

l followed your link, and did not see any reference to RedHat 9.0. Where does it mention it?

thanks,

We do not support RH9, but you can install it. If you want official support from HP and Redhat, you will have to install one of the releases I mentioned in my previous post.
