It is possible to update a supported platform to a release we have not yet tested and move from Support Level 1 or 2 to Support Level 3 status.
Distributions Missing Specific Features Operating system or kernel releases missing specific features required by BackupEDGE are NOT supported. For example, releases which do not have /proc/scsi/scsi support cannot be used.

SLES / OpenSUSE / LEAP Information

SUSE Enterprise Linux Server 15 SP2

The original default kernel shipped with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2 installations had a flaw. Please install normal updates to get to kernel 5.3.18-22 or later before attempting to make and rely on RecoverEDGE media.

SLES 15 SP1 uses the Linux 4.x kernel, and the Linux 5.x kernel is used in SLES 15 SP2 and later. However, you must install the Linux 4.x kernel distribution of BackupEDGE (edgelx40_64) for use with all versions of this operating system. This will show a warning message which you may acknowledge and safely ignore.

OpenSUSE / LEAP

The original default kernel shipped with OpenSUSE LEAP 15.2 installations (5.3.18-lp152.19-default) had a flaw. Please install normal updates to get to kernel 5.3.18-lp152.20.7-default or later before attempting to make and rely on RecoverEDGE media.

OpenSUSE LEAP 15.0 uses the Linux 4.x kernel, and the Linux 5.x kernel is used in OpenSUSE LEAP 15.2 and later. However, you must install the Linux 4.x kernel distribution of BackupEDGE (edgelx40_64) for use with all versions of this operating system.

Boot loader MUST be installed on the MBR (Master Boot Record) under GPT if not under UEFI.

ALL VERSIONS

OpenSUSE, SLES 15, SLES 12 and OpenSUSE / LEAP must be installed without BTRFS or MD in order to be compatible with RecoverEDGE.

Beginning with BackupEDGE release 03.02.03 build 2, LVM is supported for ReecoverEDGE under SLES 15, SLES 12, openSUSE LEAP 15.1, 15.0, 42.3, 42.2, and 42.1.

See the UEFI Support Tables for UEFI support information. BackupEDGE 03.02.00 or later is required to support USFI.
