We're using currently BO reporting server - BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1 and

BO Data Integrator - DATA SERVICES XI 3.2 ( in CentOS release 5.11

Now we want to upgrade the CentOS to 6 or 7. So, i would like to know if BO XI 3.1 and Data Services Version: will work on Redhat 6/7 or CentOS 6/7

Any insights, recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

1. You are using unsupported configuration as CentOS was never supported for the product versions you have listed.
2. CentOS is still not supported.
3. Xi3.1 is at the end of its life and no new platforms are added to it, You can look at the PAM document in Support Portal, but I'm sure RedHat 7 is not supported for it, RedHat 6 might , if Xi3.1 is at Sp9.

Yes, CentOS is a fork of RedHat, but we still do not support it. RedHat and Suse are the ONLY Linux flavors supported.

Thank you Denis Konovalov

BO XI 3.1 is SP3 and DATA SERVICES XI 3.2 (

So, as per your comment i understood as even RedHat 6 will not support BO XI 3.1. Correct?
