Note:

Only 64-bit operating systems are supported.

If your system is running an older version of either Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, or Oracle Linux, upgrade it before attempting to install the Veritas software. Consult the Red Hat, SUSE, or Oracle documentation for more information on upgrading or reinstalling your operating system.

For DMP, SF, SFHA, SFCFSHA, SFRAC, VCS, and VirtualStore, Symantec supports only Oracle, Red Hat, and SUSE distributed kernel binaries.

On Linux, Symantec products operate on subsequent kernel and patch releases provided the operating systems maintain kernel Application Binary Interface (ABI) compatibility.
