    Does this mean that the X7-2/2L are not certified for RHEL? Yes, Oracle has the RHCK but the X6-2/2L spells out RedHat.

    This could be a sale stopper for certain customers.

    Hello.

    I apologize that your comment has gone so long without a response.

    In order for an x86 machine to be classified as an x86 machine, it is expected that the hardware can have some 3rd party x86 operating systems installed. Oracle does work with some 3rd party OS developers to qualify x86 machines for those OS's. The 3rd party OS's listed here are what Oracle Tech Support can provide installation assistance with.

    Hello.

    Although full certification for Red Hat Linux is not listed for the x7-2 servers, the information on this page does show that Red Hat Linux OS will work on this hardware:

    https://support.oracle.com/handbook_private/Systems/Oracle_Server_X7_2/Oracle_Server_X7_2.html

    The Oracle server Development Team publishes OS version information in the "Product Notes" for each server model. For the x7-2 server, the Product Notes are made available with other x7-2 documentation here:

    https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E72435_01/index.html

    When a change is made regarding supported OS's, this document will be updated to reflect the change.

    Regards,
