Last updated on MARCH 09, 2017
Applies to:Siebel System Software - Version 22.214.171.124 SIA  to 126.96.36.199 SIA [Release V8]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The 8.1.1 release System Requirements and Supported Platform Guide (SR&SP) states the following:
"Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.4 kernel level 2.6.18-188.8.131.52.1.el5 (64-bit) Update 4 or above is supported.
The following RPMs are required:
The Platform dropdown in My Oracle Support Certification matrix only lists "Linux x86-64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5".
Certified Siebel versions carry the following note:
"Latest OS patches are recommended for full function and security. Clustering Solutions are supported through the Operating System vendor only. The latest available versions of compat-libstdc , libstdc , libgcc and C++ runtime versions are required."
Does that mean that RHEL 5.5 and above are also supported??
