Is anyone running SAP on Oracle Unbreakable Linux

Hi all

Is there any one out there using Oracle Unbreakable Linux as the operating system for any SAP Installations (ECC/CRM/BI etc) ?

If yes, can you share your experience in terms of system stability, compatability, support pack issues ?

Thanks in advance

    It is not supported officially so in case you have issues pointing to the OS itself you're on your own.

    Thanks Markus, that's what we thought too. But I am looking for someone who took that bold step and see if they can share their experience with it.

    Thanks

    • There's even a note for it:

      Note 997990 - Oracle Enterprise Linux / Oracle Unbreakable Linux

      Since it's based on Redhat it should work, however, if there are SAP specific issues with tools and versions it may be difficult to get support, same as with CentOS - which is a "recompiled Redhat Enterprise Linux" - same code as normal $$$ Redhat Advanced Server with a different logo.

      For to-become-productive systems I'd always use a supported operating system, however, I'm sure a SAP system will run on unbreakable Linux too as well as on other distributions; the statement of not supporting it may also be a political one, don't forget that Oracle and SAP are the biggest competitors! 😊
