CENTOS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just downloaded the Linux clients for SCCM and trying to install it on a CentOS 6.2 machine.  When I run the install I get an error returned

    The OS/Version/Architecture of this tar file does not match this system, exiting

    CentOS is a clone of RedHat so I would think it should install.

    Any thoughts and is CentOS even supported?

  • Just to let you know, we will be releasing another set of clients in the next couple of months, and will include a client that works and is officially supported by Microsoft on CentOS 5 and 6.   So stand by for a little while, and we will have the CentOS coverage for you. :-)

  • Hi,

    CentOS is not supported, the list of supported Linux distributions and version can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682077.aspx#BKMK_SupConfigClientReq

  • That's what I figured, but had to ask.  One funny thing is in the install file it checks for CentOS that's why I asked.

  • Will you be releasing one for Ubuntu as well by chance? :)

  • I temporarily edited file /etc/centos-release form:

    CentOS release 6.3 (Final)

    to:

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.3 (Santiago) 


    I also had to install redhat-lsb package (available through yum).
    After installation change it back to original version (you can back up file centos-release and restore it when installation finishes).
    And don't forget to put SCCM FQDN into /etc/hosts.

    Best regards,

  • The updates have taken longer than we originally expected. :-(   But we're really close now -- hopefully by the end of May.

  • Michael,

    I see the updated versions have been released here...I already have it deployed and so far so good (see screen shot below).  Would love to see a blog showing the step-by-step instructions for requesting and installing the client with a PKI based cert as this was not noted anywhere in the ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 documentation that I could find (I was able to figure it out but a blog like this could really save some folks using HTTPS only communications some time).

    By any chance do you know if the Linux agent for "System Center 2012 - Endpoint Protection SP1" is availabel for download for "Visual Studio Ultimate" MSDN subscribers or is it only available for download from the MVLS site as noted here?

    Regards,

    JJ

  • Yo, what's up with these updates for CentOS? I'd love to have them. It's been about 6 months since you last posted this will be "in a couple months" ... just curious to know when we may see this.

    Have you read JohnT's reply from June 14th? He stated:
    * Support for managing additional operating systems: AIX, HP-UX, Solaris 11, CentOS, Debian, Oracle Linux and Ubuntu.
    and also provided a download link.
    So it is already available.
