Pinned topic RHEL/SLES support matrix for Power systems

‏2012-11-16T12:21:12Z |
Hello,
I am looking for a support matrix, which gives good overview of what all RHEL/SLES releases are supported on range of Power systems? Can someone point me if any reference links?
This helps to improve our RHEL/SLES testing. Not just that, also be able to correctly address queries from any SWG teams, who keep asking us such support information.
 
I really like below links how System x brand is maintaining them.

Thanks!

    Thanks,

    Yes I was looking for this type of support matrix, Thanks Jessica!
     
    But.. one more query: I feel this link seems to be up-to-date for Power7 servers while for Power6 I do not see anywhere mention of RHEL6.x or SLES11.x support?
    So ..I think some updates are missing for Power6?

    Iranna,
    The matrix for POWER6 should be up to date.  However, I cannot verify this with my technical contacts during this US holiday week.   We'll respond with more information in a few days. 
     
    Thanks,
    Beth

     Iranna, you were correct.  The POWER6 matrix needed update to include RHEL6 and SLES11.  I've updated it on the Information Center site at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/lnxinfo/v3r0m0/index.jsp?topic=%2Fliaam%2Fliaamdistros.htm.  Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
