Do you know if there are plans to support RHEL 8 for the BigFix patch module. Customers are already upgrading their systems only to realize they cannot continue patching through BigFix.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Might be worth joining the roadmap webinar today to see if it’s announced or at least you can ask the question on that call.
Didn’t know of the webinar being held today. Can you please share a link with me to watch it? I appreciate your help.
I just saw the webinar on demand but unfortunately no mention to RHEL 8 support was made on it. Perhaps someone from the community might know it.
This is the link to the webinar:
There’s another roadmap webinar next week, but I expect you’ll get an answer before then anyway.
I am very interested in this topic as well.
We can’t move to RHEL8 on a large scale until/unless BigFix provides patching support for it. As of now, they don’t.
I did answer this in the chat q&a of the roadmap but it didn’t make the overall meeting presentation. Our target for RHEL8 agent support is 9.5.14, with content support added a few weeks after.
Thanks for your response.
And when, roughly, will 9.5.14 be available?
Our target is September for 9.5.14 at this time (again no commitments, etc…).
Ok, thanks for the information.
Is there an update to this?
We are almost at the end of October, and still no 9.5.14 and no RHEL 8 support.
We are quickly ramping up our use of RHEL 8, and are desperate for BigFix support of it.
Now that 9.5.14 is released (thanks HCL! ), is there a timeline for RHEL8 patch support? Like DeanF, we are eagerly awaiting this capability as well.
The intent is to patch content for RHEL8 out 2 weeks after the agent which has just been released with 9.5.14.
I see the RHEL8 site was released yesterday. Much appreciated!
Will the site for RHEL 8 be given a friendly name that is in line with the others, eg “Patches for RHEL 8”?
Ha ha, after enabling the site the name updated
