Opsware agent for CentOS 8

Hello,

We need a waorking opsware agent for CentOS 8 (with SA version 10.5).

I saw that there is no thread about it on https://marketplace.microfocus.com/itom/content/managed-platform-content-server-automation-2.

Is it possible to initialize this topic for this Operating System ?

Thank you in advance.

Regards

Hello,

I am wondering to let you know that you can open an ER in order to have this as soon as possible.

Hi Jonathan,

Have you figured out any workaround for this issue? I am wondering to know if we can use RHEL8 or CentOS7 manually installed on CentOS8, so have you tried anything like?

Add this and then restart the spin.

echo 'Linux CENTOS8.0-X86_64 : 10730028' >> /etc/opt/opsware/spin/os_version_map.conf

This will prevent the OS from being reported as Uknown.
A CentOS8 system will appear as RHEL8 in SA you can use the RHEL8 agent.

I will point out that this is a hokey workaround.

Thanks a lot, with small correction (my CentOS is 8.1) it is quite a good workaround for my use case.
