System Manager 2.0 on 64 bit linux (again)

I understand that there might be an (unsupported) way to get system manager 2.0 to run on 64 bit linux.

If anyone has a procedure for this I'd sure appreciate seeing it - my customer is trying to hack the package with no luck - and since 64 bit linux is all they run it's hard to talk them out of trying this  - with everyone understanding that it is fully unsupported.

Past that - is this on the roadmap? Most people are running 64 bit these days - isn't it just a new compile?

Thanks,

Graham

Hi Graham,

Thanks for your comment.

64 bit LINUX support is on our Roadmap.

Thanks,

Hi grahamk,

I'm running System Manager 2.0 on Ubuntu 11.10 amd64, I've converted the .rpm package to a .deb package using "alien" (sudo apt-get install alien); I know it's not supported but It is working fine so far.

Cheers.

There's a file called "system_manager.desktop" inside "/opt/NetApp/oncommand_system_manager/2.0", copy that file on your desktop, right click it, select "Properties", then mark the checkbox "Allow executing file as program". Every time you double-click it it will launch.

Cheers.

Has there been any update to this? When will we see a 64bit Linux version of Oncommand System Manager? I have a customer that needs it. Similar to Graham's situation above.

Thanks

I could get it work like this:

It worked fine for several weeks, then it is now stuck at "Loading systems", I don't really know why.

Re: System Manager 2.0 on 64 bit linux (again)

Are you using the beta or 2.0.2?
