    Does DevTest 8.4 run on RHEL 7.2? The official documentation only mentions RHEL 6.3. Will versions higher than 6.3 also be supported?

    Firstly, DevTest 8.4 was already end of support last year.

    DevTest versions 8.0 through 10.0 End of Service Announcement 


    DevTest 8.4 wasn't supported on RHEL 7.2 officially. RHEL 7.2 is certified on DevTest 9.5 or later.

    So, could you please consider to upgrade?

    Thank you Yasuyuki for the prompt reply.

    In our case, we are looking to install DevTest 10.1 in an RHEL 7.2 machine. We would also want to migrate the database used by an existing DevTest 8.4 installation. Reading the upgrade guide gave me the impression that an in-place upgrade was recommended, i.e., upgrading on top of an existing installation. So do you think we should manually insert the data from the DevTest 8.4 database to the DevTest 10.1 database?

    Since you are upgrading from 8.4.0 to DevTest 10.1, I would create a new schema for DevTest 10.1 for both Enterprise Dashboard and Registry databases.  


    Please read this link:

    I recommend you open a support case and let us help you upgrade.  We have a SWAT team that works with support to get customers migrated to supported releases.  The current release is DevTest 10.2, so I suggest to upgrade to that release:
