    Default Network Edition in SuSE 11?

    The system requirements page for ZCS 5.0 only lists SuSE 10 and SuSE 10 64-bit. Is or will NE be supported in 11 and is any version of SuSE going to be continued to be supported in the future? I saw a thread about OpenSuSE being dropped.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    Your tag says you're running on RHEL. If it were me, I'd stay there unless you have some sort of mandate.

    We are a Zimbra distributor. I have a client who is looking to run on SuSE 11.

    We are very happy on RH and the only change we might be doing is to move to RH EL5 from EL4

    zimbra doesn't install on opensuse 11 because of hte perl version, same with recent fedora and other distribution builds. there is a workaround by downgrading to a previous perl version along with other packages that rely on it but it's a huge pain in the butt and not worth it to run on an unsupported OS.

    The client is wanting to use Enterprise SuSE, not OpenSuSE. That is what the original thread was asking about. Currently the docs state that NE supports SuSE 10, but 11 is new so I didn't know if they were gonig that way or what.

    I am sorry but what does that mean? What I really want to know is if Zimbra will continue to support SLES? We do not use RedHat and do not plan on doing so we will look at Ubuntu if SLES will not be a supported OS going forward.

    Thus far Zimbra is using a 'based on installed numbers' method for support. So if SLES installs beginto pale in comparison to say RHEL or Ubuntu LTS, they will discontinue SLES support. It has been speculated that SLES will be axed bu there has been no firm commitment. OpenSuSE gets the axe at the end of the Zimbra 5.x series and there are only offificial releases made for OpenSuSE 10.2 which is EOL from an OpenSuSE perspective.

    So then we will look into to using Ubuntu LTS as we will never go with RHEL.
