ESM 6.8 Patch2 Upgrade Path
In the latest ESM Support Matrix document I found, ESM v6.8 Patch2 is not mentioned. Does 6.8 Patch2 support RHEL 6.4/6.5?
Why I am asking is the following:
6.8c supports only RHEL 6.4/6.5. 6.8 Patch2 adds support for RHEL6.6. Considering this the only upgrade path is the following:
6.8 running on RHEL 6.4/6.5 -> apply 6.8 Patch2 -> apply OS upgrade to RHEL 6.6
I have two concerns here:
1. No official nupport matrix information found for 6.8 Patch2 vs RHEL OS version.
2. In case of the need of new ESM installation(s), since 6.8 Patch2 has a prerequisite of 6.8c, we must have a RHEL 6.4/6.5 to be able to install ESM 6.8c for Patch 2 preparation while RHEL 6.5 is already EOL in our company.
Can anyone confirm the upgrade path? (6.8 running on RHEL 6.4/6.5 -> apply 6.8 Patch2 -> apply OS upgrade to RHEL 6.6)
Another possibility I see is: stop the ESM 6.8c suite running on RHEL 6.4/6.5 - > upgrade RHEL to 6.6 -> apply 6.8 Patch2
Thanks and regards,
