-->>BNA 12.4.2 install on Redhat Linuxppc64 fails......
-->>I'm trying to install BNA 12.4.2 on PowerPC and OS is Redhat 7.1
Keep in mind, BNA is supported on RedHat, however only for Intel Based plattforms and no on other CPU Architectures.
for details about supported OS, refer BNA Installation and Migration Guide.
I think you should open a Call by Brocade with such request if any solution is available.
Again, from the Official GA= General Available DOC and Guide, such a solutions is not Supported.
Antonio is correct - BNA is not currently supported on PowerPC architectures. There are no current plans to add support for it. For better or worse, x86-64 dominates the server CPU market. PowerPC is not required for modifiying server resources on the fly - e.g. VMware offers hot-add CPU/RAM.
If there is sufficient demand for porting, then we can evaluate the business case - please get in touch with your account team.
