64-bit RedHat compatability

Anyone looking for Scan Engine support on RedHat 64-bit may soon get their wish granted. I got a webcase recently and it was escalated to backline who have said they put in a feature request for Scan Engine to get certified on 64-bit version of RedHat Enterperise Linux (RHEL). Currently we support 64-bit SuSe Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) and Windows 2003 and 2008 64-bit environments.

Be advised this could still be 6 months or more down the road since 5.2.6 is most likely already finished and this is something we might see in 5.2.7.

Watch this document for updates:

Title: 'Is Scan Engine 4.3.x, 5.1.x, or 5.2.x is supported on a 64-bit Redhat Linux operating system?'

You say Scan Engine is Win2008 compatible however the SESA agent that comes with it is not. How would we be able to receive a SESA agent that's Win2008 compatible?

SESA is a discontinued product

SSIM is the replacement for SESA. I know with the some of the products its now up to the SSIM system/software/server to reach out and get the data from the software rather than having agents to configure per product.

That is correct, I forgot to mention that Scan Engine 5.2 reports to SSIM servers now, and SESA has been phased out. I don't know who we are still including its agents with our Scan Engine download.

Hi,

Is an agent required for SSIM or is this built into Scan Engine?  What is faster more secure and easier to support having Linux or Windows?
