    CentOS operating system and Aleph

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Question

    Could we use CentOS operating system instead of Linux Red Hat?

    Answer

    It is officially not supported.

    The supported and tested operating systems for Aleph 21 are:

    - Sun — Solaris 10 (Update 6 or later), based on SPARC or x86 processors
    - Linux —Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 5 and 6, 64?bit, based on Intel or AMD 64?bit processors
    - IBM RS/6000 – AIX 6.1

    However because CentOS is 100% compatible to RedHat, Ex Libris does not expect problems using CentOS instead of Red Hat.
    But Ex Libris does not plan any future certification tests for Aleph versions on CentOS platform. Our QA is done on Red Hat systems.
