Hello,

Has anyone out there successfully installed NetApp's "DataFabric
Manager" (DFM) on CentOS?  If so, what version of DFM, CentOS, and
what architecture?

I am trying to install DFM 4.0.2, and have tried on both CentOS 4.8
i386 and CentOS 5.5 x86_64.  I have edited my /etc/redhat-release file
to be equal to RHEL's, as the DFM installer immediately aborts if that
isn't right.  However, I still have errors during the install:

Enter your NetApp DataFabric Manager license key [?,q]: <entered my key>

/var/log/messages has this:

Looks like the problem is with SQLAnywhere, which appears to be a
Sybase product.

Anyone been down this road?  So far NetApp is stonewalling me on CentOS support.

Thanks,
Matt
