BMC Remedy AR System 7.5.00 Compatibility Matrix

Introduction
The BMC Remedy AR System 7.5.00 Compatibility Matrix is divided into multiple areas of support. Each of these areas is further broken down into three sections: Supported Configurations Known Issues Potential Issues

Supported Configurations are those where the configuration is expected to work properly based on design, testing or general understanding of the interaction between products. For supported configurations, BMC Customer Support will work with customers on an issue involving the configuration until either the issue is resolved or a defect / enhancement is logged. Configurations not listed may still operate properly with AR System and thus customers may choose to run AR System in a configuration not listed as supported. Such configurations would be considered as unconfirmed. BMC Remedy will accept issues reported in unconfirmed configurations but we reserve the right to request customer assistance in problem determination, including recreating the problem on a supported configuration. Reported defects either found to be unique to an unconfirmed configuration or not reproducible within a supported environment will be addressed at the discretion of BMC Remedy. Defects requiring time and resources beyond commercially reasonable effort may not be addressed. If a configuration is found to be incompatible with AR System or ITSM applications, support for that configuration will be specifically documented as not supported (or unsupported c.f. Known Issues below). The Known Issues section documents any known additional requirements or incompatibilities between BMC products and products from other vendors. This list represents only those situations that BMC has encountered or researched and may not represent an exhaustive list. The Potential Issues section documents issues of supportability or incompatibility between BMC products and products from other vendors that are for informational purposes only. Final word on these statements would need to be stated in documentation from the other vendor. In all tables, Italics indicate an addition since AR System 7.1.00.

BMC Remedy AR System 7.5.00 Compatibility Matrix Vendor Backwards Compatibility and AR System 7.5.00
It is expected that a vendor will retain full backwards compatibility with existing major or minor versions of a product when releasing newer versions of their products. This includes major, minor and maintenance releases as well as service packs, patches, updates or other similar level of changes. Unless otherwise stipulated by written communication from BMC Software, BMC Remedy AR System supports the listed version of vendor products or higher with regard to supported server operating systems, desktop operating systems, databases, web or application servers, servlet engines or browsers. However, this support is limited by documented compatibility restrictions from the vendors themselves. For example, if Oracle database version 10g were listed, AR System would support Oracle database version 10g, 11g and future higher versions of Oracle database. In the event that a vendor does not provide backwards compatibility, BMC reserves the right to rescind support for a specified version of a vendors product and document such incompatibilities once confirmed. BMC may, at BMCs discretion, attempt to address a discovered incompatibility by modifying the current version of AR System. However, if major architectural changes in a vendor product require significant BMC development to achieve tolerance, support for the vendor product may be deferred to a later version of AR System.

Virtual environment support


Support Definitions for Virtual Environments
Support is defined at two levels full or partial. A fully supported virtual environment indicates that BMC will accept problems reported in the virtual environment; recreate any reported problems within the virtual environment; and address the issue in the same manner as other reported issues on non-virtual environments. Partial support indicates that BMC will accept problems reported in the virtual environments specified below, but reserves the right to request customer assistance in problem determination, including recreating the problem in a non-virtual environment. Under partial support, reported defects either found to be unique to a virtual environment or not reproducible within a native non-virtual environment will be addressed at the discretion of BMC. Defects requiring time and resources beyond commercially reasonable effort may not be addressed. BMC will only provide partial or full support for those operating systems running within a virtual environment that are defined within BMC Remedy compatibility matrices as supported on a non-virtual environment.

Partially supported virtual environments


Vendor
VMWare Microsoft

Virtual platform
GSX Server, Workstation, VMWare Server, Dynamic Resource Scheduler (DRS) and VMotion Enabled Environments Hyper-V
