The installation guide for ANM 2.1 says that RedHat AS 5 Update 2 (5.2) 32-bit Server Edition (Linux 2.6 Kernel) must be installed if you are installing ANM for the first time on a server where it has never been installed.
Is AS really required as it's not even available for version 5.x (seems to be called Advanced Platform now)? http://www.redhat.com/rhel/compare/
I'm hoping that this is just a mistake in the install guide as I really can't see that ANM would need unlimited sockets as it's relatively lightweight!
I've had the product working fine in vmware on ordinary Red Hat (Base Server) / Centos 5.2
If anyone from product management is listening here, this whole delivery of ANM only on Red Hat is starting to annoy me, especially as Cisco is starting to deliver some vmware appliance images on top of Centos now!
Thanks for any input.
