We are using currently using DB2 Adv Enterprise Edition with pureScale version 11.1.2.2. on RHEL 7.4 kernel and InfiniBand network backbone.

We need to upgrade the RHEL 7.4 which is already out of support and RHEL 7.5 being out of support by March 26, 2019.

We are looking at using RHEL 7.6 for hosting DB2 pureScale.

However, the IBM DB2 Adv Ent Edition system requirements are indicating that its not supported yet !
