License entitlement:

RHEL Compatible OS: Defect support is available for Linux environments that are fully compatible, both source and binary, with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 or 8. Unless stated otherwise, IBM MQ has not been tested in such compatible environments. Therefore IBM MQ Support is unable to help with issues related to configuration and setup, or issues that are directly related to the Linux environment. If issues arise that are related to the compatible Linux environment, contact the Linux environment vendor for support. If you can re-create the issue inside an environment tested by IBM, you are then entitled to IBM MQ support.

Replicated Data Queue Manager (RDQM) depends on an RHEL kernel module and is only supported on RHEL x86-64.

Virtualization: Defect support is available for virtualization environments where they relate to releases of this platform already supported by IBM MQ. Unless stated elsewhere in the system requirements, IBM MQ has not been specifically tested in virtualization environments.

Therefore IBM MQ support is unable to assist in issues related to configuration and setup, or issues that are directly related to the virtualization environment. Also refer to: IBM MQ's support position on Virtualization, low-level hardware, file systems on networks and high availability.
