Is there any way to create recovery disk on Redhat 5.8?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am a user of Symantec System Recovery 2011 Linux Edition.

I know that it doesn't support Redhat Enterprise Linux 5.8 yet but it's all I have and use. Backing up has no problem. However, I couldn't create recovery disk with the iso file of Redhat 5.8.

It says

"Iso file name not found in supported iso list.  Checking for a match using MD5 sum"

I understand why it is, but is there any way to avoid checking version or md5 hash to create disk? or any other way to create recovery disk?

Updates is coming soon? Redhat 5.8 was relased in February 2012. 4 months passed.

Not that I know of. You are in an unsupported environment anyway.

I will see if I can find out when RHEL 5.8 is going to be supported.

Update...

I just checked and this question was asked recently. There are currently no plans to support RHEL 5.8 in SSR 2011.

Support will be available in the next release of SSR which is planned for early October 2012.

Okay, Thanks. 

There is no way to use SSR on RHEL 5.8. Wait until October or get the other one.
I'll consider that.
