Dell OpenManage Enterprise and CentOS

Hi there,

It seems that Dell OpenManage is based of CentOS 7 but this operating system will be end of life next year (June 2024).

Is there any plan to update the appliance? Not an emergency yet but our company is already opening an EOL project and we have to have some justifications for Dell OME.

Thanks in advance and kind regards

@Franck Ehret  if it is still relevant, the 4.x version seems to be using SUSE. From the User Guide, Deployment/Deploy in KVM

Operating system: The intended operating system for the virtual machine. For OpenManage Enterprise 4.0 and later, the operating system used is SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP4 (15.4)

Hi Marco,

Would be nice to get one some don't you think? 😉

I can't imagine Dell is not working on the issue... But of course, I can understand that such information are not disclosed yet.

Please update this post whenever you get anything new, this can be useful for some of us.

Kind regards
