RHEL8/RH8 Support for Sterling B2B Integrator


End of Support


With the "End of Support" notification for SI 5.2.6 recently announced, preparation to upgrade to SI 6.0.0 is essential.

SI currently supports RHEL7 (which reaches "End of Support" in  Aug 2021.


Rather than installing a new instance of SI 6.0.x onto RHEL7 and then repeating the process again on RHEL once its supported. It'd be really useful to know this information sooner rather than later.


Please advised when RHEL8  is available, so we can plan accordingly and make the installation once.
