    Unsupported OS while installing embedded cluster service

    Markus Krieg New Member

      Is there a possibility to disable the OS version check while installing the embedded cluster service?

      I'm running the installation on our internal test system and getting the error of "Unsupported OS current OS almalinux-release-8.4.2 ..."

      I know that in the PAM is described that version 8.3 of RHEL is supported. But almalinux is a clone of RHEL and we are working on the actual version of it.

          I don't think so you can disable the OS version check and it is not recommended as well to disable that check.It will cause issue later.

           

          If it is not mentioned in PAM document ,please try to connect with Informatica Global support for confirmation on the same.

            Hello Markus,

             

            i want to support the information from Mayank.

             

            Should we talk about EDC 10.5 you have the file checkOSVersion.sh

            which is under

            <INFA_HOME>//services/InfaClusterService/Binaries/

             

            with this .sh your version would be determined.

            So you could manipulate this file to get over the version check.

             

            E.g.

            From:

            #!/bin/bash
            if [ -f /etc/os-release ]; then
            # freedesktop.org and systemd
            . /etc/os-release
            OS=$NAME
            VER=$VERSION_ID
            elif type lsb_release >/dev/null 2>&1; then
            # linuxbase.org
            OS=$(lsb_release -si)
            VER=$(lsb_release -sr)
            fi
            echo "OS=$OS"
            echo "VERSION=$VER"


            to

            #!/bin/bash
            if [ -f /etc/os-release ]; then
            # freedesktop.org and systemd
            . /etc/os-release
            OS=$NAME
            VER=$VERSION_ID
            elif type lsb_release >/dev/null 2>&1; then
            # linuxbase.org
            OS=$(lsb_release -si)
            VER=$(lsb_release -sr)
            fi
            echo "OS=Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server"
            echo "VERSION=7.9
            "

             

             

            However by doing this:

            You would loose

            - Complete Support of Informatica Software

            - Follow up errors could easily happen as this is not tested at all

             

            So this is not recommended at all if it's not a pure test environment for you own without any involvement of Informatica.

             

            Please let me know if you have further questions.

            Best regards

              Hi Markus,

               

              thanks for the feedback. That solved my problem.

              I'm aware about the supported OS named in the PAM for version 10.5. Currently I setup a internal sandbox system just for playing a little bit and figure out some functionality.
              I always reommend to use supported OS on customer environments otherwise they will lost guarantee.

              Regards,

              Markus
