redhat rhel 8.6 EUS - missing in support matrix

Dear friends,

 

while looking on Supported Operating Systems for Retail Intel® Ethernet Adapters  there is a following table:

intel-ethernet-missing-rhel86.png

RHEL 8.6 is not mentioned in previous matrix despite RedHat is still supporting it till ~2Q 2024.

 

What about RedHat 8.6 when we are using "Extended User support" repositories ?

Is it supported?

Is it tested?

Will be somebody @intel testing drivers against RHEL 8.6 EUS kernel till it's supported by RedHat ?

Hi Vincococka,


The latest update from the next level team confirms that RHEL 8.6 is supported. However, a mistake has been detected in the Release Notes, which will be addressed in the upcoming release. Additionally, the Support Matrix will be updated accordingly to ensure that all changes are accurately represented.


Kindly let us know if you have further questions or concerns.

Dear Vincococka,


Thank you for your post on the Intel Ethernet Communities forum.


Regarding the retail Intel Ethernet Adapter as mentioned in the table, the current latest driver version 28.0 supports and has been tested for RHEL 9.7 and 8.7 for the E800 Series, . However, while RHEL 8.5 and earlier versions are also supported in version 28.0, they have not been tested by Intel. Customers may try testing these versions on their own.


Moreover, RHEL 8.6 is supported on driver version 27.5 and above. You can find further details in the product release notes, which are available at this link: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000057110/ethernet-products.html


For more information on Linux kernel drivers, you can refer to the Intel® Ethernet Drivers and Utilities SourceForge project page, which is accessible via this link: https://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/files/


Please let us know if you have further questions or concern.

Dear Irwan,

 

thanks a lot for providing info regarding RHEL 8.6.

My question was primarily targeted towards possibility of the support for RHEL "long-term" releases by Intel engineers as they know their HW best.

For some systems it's critical to have updated/fixed drivers, but customer can't / doesn't want to update their systems to latest version of RHEL.

 

Have a nice day.
