Does the Cloud Agent Platform support Ubuntu 16.04?
There is a multi-part answer.
- Ubuntu 16.04 for VM and Inventory are supported in Linux agent 1.5.0 (available since Sept).
- Policy Compliance is still being developed, target Linux agent 1.6 (Dec).
The Linux agent 1.5.1 was planned for an interim release driven by a single large customer, but they decided to wait until 1.6.
According to the Cloud Agent for Linux Installation Guide published Sep 13, 2016, it supports Ubuntu 12, 14 and 15. I can check plans for Ubuntu 16.
Ubuntu 16.4 is planned for support by the Cloud Agent in Portal 2.17 / Linux Agent 1.5.1 release, targeted for October 2016.
Is this still in place for an update in October 2016? Or will this be pushed to November?
Today's US Platform 2 release included Linux Agent 1.5.0, which doesn't include support for Ubuntu 16.4; so it should be in the next release.
Is there any change for Policy Compliance support for Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04?
Ubuntu 16.04 is supported for policy compliance already. Ubuntu 18.04 is scheduled to be supported with Policy Compliance for Q4 2018 or early Q1 2019.
