Linux Support - Red Hat Family - BackupEDGE 3.x

BackupEDGE and its disaster recovery component RecoverEDGE are tested against a large number of distributions in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux family, which also includes CentOS and Oracle Linux Server.

Please carefully check the NOTES section below and the RecoverEDGE Support Page for important information. If a release can't be found on our table it is not supported.

Linux server distributions are generally supported for finite periods of time, generally two to five years, by the developer releasing the product. BackupEDGE support may be limited, even under Subscription, after the operating system has reached the developer's official end-of-life.

Miscellaneous Linux Information

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 / 7 Family Notes

Oracle Notes

Oracle Linux Server 8.x uses the Linux 4.x kernel in standard mode, and the Linux 5.x kernel in Unbreakable Kernel mode. You must install the Linux 4.x kernel distribution of BackupEDGE (edgelx40_64) for use with this operating system.

Oracle Linux Server comes with 2 kernels; the Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel and the Oracle Unbreakable Kernel, When making RecoverEDGE media you must be booted from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel. During all other operations either kernel can be used.

ALL VERSIONS

Encrypted System Drives / Partitions

Encrypted operating system drives / filesystems are not supported by RecoverEDGE.
