Supported operating systems for traditional and Salt clients are listed in this table.

In this table, indicates that clients running the operating system are supported by SUSE, and indicates that it is not supported. Fields marked as are under consideration, and may or may not be supported at a later date.

For SUSE operating systems, the version and SP level must be under general support (normal or LTSS) to be supported with SUSE Manager. For details on supported product versions, see:

For non-SUSE operating systems, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and Oracle Linux, only the latest available version is under general support.
