DXL Broker OS version

Dear mCafee, 

We would like to clearify what your best recommendation is in regards to OS version of the CentOS that is beeing installed. 

Option1: Install the DXL broker through the TIE .iso and only install the DXL role. But we get an older version of Linux CentOS (se screenshot Option1).

Option2: Install the DXL broker service on TOP of freshly new installed CentOS with a newer version and the possibillity to patch that OS in the future. (See screenshot Option2). 


What is your statement on above options in regards to the best approach to compatibility and patch level on the OS? Should we do or Not do Option2 in the future without the consern that this might stop working or affect the DXL broker if we choose to patch the CentOS every month?

Re: DXL Broker OS version

Hello al-faunzo, 

The TIE server ISO and OVA deployment methods will install MLOS as the operating system. If you intend to manage the OS yourself for your DXL deployments you would be required to build your own system and leverage the Deployment tasks in ePO to deploy the DXL Broker package to that system. 

You are correct, if you opt to manage your own OS for the platform you will be responsible for managing the OS updates for that system. However, this is supported.
