Re: is OpenSuse11.3 and CentOS5.4 compatible on a x3650m3 server?????2011-01-31T19:01:10Z in response to vinu2930There are really two questions - whether it is compatible and whether it is supported.
CentOS 5.4 is built from the RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.4 source, and I know of a number of sites that run CentOS on x3550/x3650M2-M3. I would therefore call it "compatible". However, CentOS is not formally supported.
Since OpenSUSE is not a direct match to any supported SUSE release, the issue is more complicated. I have had customers successfully run OpenSUSE on IBM platforms, but not recently at the 11.x level. There's a good chance it will work, but also this is not a supported configuration.
