IBM WebSphere Process Server and IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, Version 6.1.2, hardware and software requirements - Linux on IBM System z

Product documentation


Abstract

This document lists the hardware and software requirements for IBM WebSphere Process Server and IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, Version 6.1.2, on the Linux operating system on IBM System z platforms.

Content

This document describes the minimum product levels that must be installed before opening a problem report with the WebSphere Process Server or WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus support team. Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, testing every configuration is not possible. In general, you can install and run with minor updates to supported products if those updates are compatible with later versions. For more information on available support for configurations that are not included in the following list, refer to the following support article: WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus has grown and so have your requirements. The product support and technical support for minor updates that are compatible with later versions is covered in the "Other Configurations" section.

Supporting software (for example LDAP servers) can run, but is not required to run, on the same computer or operating system on which the product runs. For additional information:

The following list identifies supporting software that runs on the Linux operating system on IBM System z platforms.
