    Does Endpoint manager 2018.1 support OS provisioning for Ubuntu and Linux OS?

      Hi,

       

      I'm a bit confused by the supported features matrix

      Supported Platforms and Compatibility Matrix for LANDESK Management Suite/Ivanti Endpoint Manager

       

      Does Endpoint manager 2018.1 support OS provisioning for Ubuntu and Linux OS?

       

      thanks!

          In short - It does not (support provisioning of NIX environments).

           

          The boot environment is WinPE - which isn't exactly great for poking NIX-based file systems.

           

          Now - you *CAN* take an image & restore that image using our default imaging tool (as that's sector-based & will be able to snatch anything on a HD), but that's not really "provisioning per se" - since you usually want to "poke at" & "fiddle with" stuff in the file system to properly manage / provision a box anyway.

           

          I had a similar conversation reasonably recently, which you can look up here -- How to expand Linux partition in OS Provisioning -- (found the darn thing at last).

           

          Most NIX-houses tend to use Kickstart & similar to provision their estate already, so it's not a very common request / ask on us (we "had" something eons ago that'd allow functioning in a Linux environment, but it was used very rarely). You could voice your interest here -- Enhancement Requests -- in terms of having such a feature added back in.

           

          Does that help?
